Wisconsin Court of Appeals
Criminal Procedure — right to counsel — waiver
Gregory Garro appeals from a judgment of conviction entered after a jury found him guilty of three counts of willfully omitting a material fact in the offer and sale of a security, as party to a crime, contrary to Wis. Stat. §§ 551.41(2) and 939.05 (2001-02), and from the order denying his postconviction motion. Garro complains that the trial court improperly denied his motion for a new trial because he did not knowingly, intelligently, and voluntarily waive his right to counsel and because the trial court improperly excluded a loan commitment form that Garro argues was critical to his defense. Because the trial court properly determined that Garro knowingly, intelligently, and voluntarily waived his right to counsel and because the trial court properly determined that the loan commitment form was irrelevant, we affirm.
