I have not seen any caselaw that will allow what you are seeking. Once you are not "actually confined" it is almost impossible to get habeas relief. You could litigate and appeal the issue but I do not see you being successful without a showing of signifigant or real confinment or other...View More
Usually, no. There is no "compensation" just because you have succeeded in your appeal. But there may be other avenues for damages or compensation, upon the dismissal of your case based on your success on appeal. But I'm not a Texas attorney.
