2255 Claimant Filed Untimely

U.S. v. Peraza, 2012 WL 6062666 (12/7/12) (Okl.) (unpub'd) - The § 2255 movant received an ACCA sentence due to an escape conviction that would not have counted as a predicate conviction under Chambers. Because the movant did not file a § 2255 motion within a year of that decision he was out of luck. His ignorance of the law and insufficient access to that law were not good enough excuses.
