Habeas Appellate Court Opinion

by Townsend, Karen


AC45232 - Crocker v. Commissioner of Correction (“The petitioner claims on appeal that the court improperly rejected his claims that counsel in two previous habeas actions provided ineffective assistance of counsel by failing to raise claims that his criminal trial counsel rendered ineffective assistance by not conducting a proper investigation to identify exculpatory witnesses and/or by failing to call exculpatory witnesses to testify at his criminal trial. We disagree. Accordingly, we affirm the judgment of the habeas court.”)
