Can an ex offender use a Writ of Certiorari to clear a wrongful conviction?

Ex offender doesn't mean anything, do you mean an ex convict, e.g. someone who has served his/her sentence and been released? In American law, when a case is decided the parties have a right to review by an appellate court. For example, if someone is convicted in Federal District Court, they have the right to have their case reviewed by the Federal Court of Appeals. After the Court of Appeals, they can appeal to the Supreme Court but the Supreme Court can choose whether or not to hear the case. If the Supreme Court decides to hear the case, the Supreme Court issues a Writ of Certiorari, which directs the Court of Appeals to send the records to the Supreme Court. So the answer is no, a writ of certiorari isn't used by a convicted criminal to clear a wrongful conviction. The court uses a writ of certiorari to take the case.
