2010AP1747-CR State v. John F.B.

Criminal Procedure
Ineffective assistance

John F.B. appeals a judgment convicting him of second-degree sexual assault of a child under sixteen years of age and an order denying his motion for a new trial. He contends that trial counsel provided ineffective assistance by failing to adequately impeach the victim with prior inconsistent statements and by failing to introduce evidence that a prosecution witness had received favorable treatment in his own case after implicating Brown. We conclude that counsel’s performance was not deficient in either respect and therefore affirm. This opinion will not be published.
