Habeas Appellate Court Opinion

by Townsend, Karen


AC39651 - Diaz v. Commissioner of Correction ("On appeal, the petitioner claims that the habeas court erroneously denied his ineffective assistance of counsel claim. Specifically, the petitioner claims that his trial counsel rendered ineffective assistance by failing to file a motion to dismiss a home invasion charge, to which he pleaded guilty pursuant to the Alford doctrine. We affirm the judgment of the habeas court.")
