David's legal case


Application for Certificate of Appealability (pdf).
This document is a request to the United States Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit to hear Davidís federal habeas corpus appeal, arguing that Davidís most recent (third) trial was unconstitutional and unfair because of the prosecutorsí concealment of their theory that, in addition to David, Sheila Meinert also fired shots at Officer Ablanedo, and because the protection against Double Jeopardy required that David be granted an entire new trial, not just a new sentencing trial, when the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals reversed his sentence in his second trial but left his conviction in place


Petition for writ of Certiorari (pdf).

This document is a request to the United States Supreme Court to hear the issue concerning the denial of an entire new trial when the Court of Criminal Appeals reversed his sentence in his second trial but left his conviction in place.
