Habeas Law Appellate Court Opinion

by Townsend, Karen


AC37738 - Sewell v. Commissioner of Correction (Habeas; "On appeal, the petitioner claims that the habeas court erred by concluding that his trial counsel did not render ineffective assistance. The petitioner claims that his trial counsel failed to adequately investigate the state’s witnesses and prepare for trial, and as a result, he was prejudiced. We disagree with the petitioner and, accordingly, affirm the judgment of the habeas court.")
