00-3174 State v. Quinn

Eddie Lee Quinn appeals from an order denying his motion for an evidentiary hearing to establish that he is entitled to postconviction relief. Although Quinn concedes that he failed to raise on appeal the issues he is currently asserting, as required by sec. 974.06, he argues that he has a “sufficient reason” for this failure. His sufficient reason is that his court-appointed appellate counsel provided him with ineffective assistance by refusing to raise issues he wanted raised. We conclude that Quinn’s appointed counsel was not constitutionally ineffective and that Quinn does not have a sufficient reason for failing to comply with the requirements of sec. 974.06.

We therefore affirm.
