My question involves criminal law for the state of:Missouri....I pled guilty to two (2) counts of felony non-support that covered a two year period,spent time in prison,etc., etc. I found out that the child was emancipated by law before this two year period meaning that a crime never occured. This also means that the state lacked jurisdiction in this matter,therefore, I believe that a writ of mandamus would lie since it is used to correct a court that has exceeded it's jurisdiction. I believe it would also apply because i do not believe that I have any other remedy available.(Any and all normal PCR options are not available---- it has taken SEVEN years to extract this information from the state in writing to prove the emancipation date of said child.
