STATE EX REL. MICHAEL BALL
STATE OF LOUISIANA
SUPERVISORY WRITS TO THE TWENTY-FOURTH JUDICIAL DISTRICT
COURT, PARISH OF JEFFERSON
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 court of
appeal's written reasons denying writs.
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.
