Wisconsin Court of Appeals
Criminal Procedure — ineffective assistance – severance — new trials
Kevin Flowers appeals a judgment of conviction for five counts of burglary, as a party to the crime, and an order denying his motion for postconviction relief. Flowers argues: he received ineffective assistance of counsel; the circuit court erroneously failed to sever the charges; the jury improperly heard prejudicial impeachment testimony on a collateral issue; there was insufficient evidence to convict on three charges; and he is entitled to a new trial in the interest of justice. We reject Flowers’ arguments and affirm. This opinion will not be published.
