Wisconsin Court of Appeals
Criminal Procedure — ineffective assistance
Jeffrey Byrnes appeals a judgment of conviction for two counts of sexual assault of a child. He also appeals an order denying his postconviction motion seeking plea withdrawal or resentencing. Byrnes contends that: (1) he was denied the effective assistance of counsel when his trial counsel failed to move to suppress statements Byrnes made to police; and (2) he is entitled to resentencing because he was sentenced based on the inaccurate information that he had sexual intercourse rather than sexual contact with the children, resulting in excessive and overly harsh sentences. We reject these contentions, and affirm. This opinion will not be published.
