STATE EX REL. DOUGLAS CRADDOCK
STATE OF LOUISIANA
SUPERVISORY WRITS TO THE TWENTY-THIRD JUDICIAL DISTRICT
COURT, PARISH OF ASCENSION
Relator fails to show he received ineffective assistance of
counsel under the standard of Strickland v.
Washington, 466 U.S. 668, 104 S.Ct. 2052, 80 L.Ed.2d 674
(1984). As to the remaining claims, relator fails to satisfy
his post-conviction burden of proof. La.C.Cr.P. art. 930.2.
We attach hereto and make a part hereof the district
court's written reasons denying relief.
has now fully litigated his 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's claims have now been fully litigated in accord
with La. C.Cr.P. art. 930.6, and this denial is 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 curiam.
