STATE EX REL. DEMETRIUS BRADLEY
STATE OF LOUISIANA
SUPERVISORY WRITS TO THE FIRST JUDICIAL DISTRICT COURT,
PARISH OF CADDO
The application was not timely filed in the district court,
and relator fails to carry his burden to show that an
exception applies. La.C.Cr.P. art. 930.8; State ex rel.
Glover v. State, 93-2330 (La. 9/5/95), 660 So.2d 1189.
We attach hereto and make a part hereof the district
court's written reasons for judgment.
has now fully litigated at least one application for
post-conviction relief in state court. Similar to federal
habeas relief, see 28 U.S.C. § 2244, Louisiana
post-conviction procedure envisions the filing of a second or
successive application only under the narrow circumstances
provided in La.C.Cr.P. art. 930.4 and within the limitations
period as set out in La.C.Cr.P. art.930.8. Notably, the
Legislature in 2013 La. Acts 251 amended that article to make
the procedural bars against successive filings mandatory.
Relator has filed an application for post-conviction relief
in the district court, and the district court's ruling
denying relief is now final. Hereafter, unless he can show
that one of the narrow exceptions authorizing the filing of a
successive application applies, relator has exhausted his
right to state collateral review. The district court is
ordered to record a minute entry consistent with this per
NO.: 240612 (SECTION 1)
