Criminal Procedure — plea withdrawal — ineffective assistance

Edward Hill appeals pro se from the denial of his postconviction motion to withdraw his guilty plea. He asserts two grounds for withdrawal: (1) his attorney misinformed him as to the consequences of a read-in charge at a subsequent revocation hearing in a different case and (2) his attorney failed to show him a particular witness statement prior to the plea. Based on those facts, he argues that his plea was the result of ineffective assistance of counsel and that it was not knowingly, intelligently, and voluntarily entered. We agree with the trial court that the record contains no evidence to support Hill’s claim that trial counsel misinformed him. Furthermore, Hill forfeited his argument regarding the witness statement because he did not raise it as part of his postconviction motion. We affirm. This opinion will not be published.
