Habeas Appellate Court Opinion

by Townsend, Karen


AC45795 - Martinez v. Commissioner of Correction (Ineffective assistance of counsel; "On appeal, the petitioner claims that his trial counsel, Attorney TaShun Bowden-Lewis, performed deficiently by failing to offer her opinion as to whether the petitioner should have taken a pretrial plea offer from the state and that he was prejudiced by trial counsel’s deficient performance. We disagree and, accordingly, affirm the judgment of the habeas court.”)
