do you have to be locked up in order to file for ineffected council or cah I be released from prison
2 Answers from Attorneys
You can file a motion for ineffective council assistance of counsel if you had the right to counsel and your attorney's performance fell below the minimum standard. No relation to whether you are currently incarcerated.
I fully agree with the prior answer. Any representation must meet certain standards ,jail is not an issue.
