Criminal Procedure
Ineffective assistance; Confrontation Clause

Louis Torres appeals a judgment convicting him of three counts of second-degree sexual assault with use of force or violence. He also appeals an order denying his postconviction motion. He argues that: (1) the evidence was insufficient to support the conviction; (2) he received ineffective assistance of counsel because his attorney should have called his nephew, Michael Torres, as an alibi witness; and (3) he was denied his constitutional right to confront the witnesses against him. We affirm. This opinion will not be published.
