Habeas Appellate Court Opinion

by Townsend, Karen


AC39441 - Humble v. Commissioner of Correction ("On appeal, the petitioner claims that the habeas court abused its discretion in denying his petition for certification to appeal and improperly rejected his claim that his trial counsel rendered ineffective assistance. Specifically, the petitioner claims that his trial counsel rendered ineffective assistance by (1) failing to adequately investigate exculpatory evidence, and (2) misadvising him to plead guilty to murder. We conclude that the habeas court did not abuse its discretion in denyingthe petition for certification to appeal. Accordingly, we dismiss the appeal.")
