Ineffective assistance; jury unanimity
Carl Mills appeals a judgment of conviction and an order denying his postconviction motion seeking dismissal of two second-degree sexual assault charges. Mills argues that his trial counsel was ineffective for failing to object to verdict forms that did not specify the types of sexual assault associated with each charge, thereby violating his right to verdict specificity and jury unanimity. We disagree. Not recommended for publication in the official reports.
