Criminal Procedure — motion to withdraw — ineffective assistance

James Emerson appeals a judgment of conviction, entered on a jury verdict, for first-degree intentional homicide. He also appeals an order denying postconviction relief. Emerson argues the circuit court erred by denying his trial counsel’s motion to withdraw, by selecting jurors from a non-racially diverse county, and by admitting other acts evidence. He also asserts that his trial counsel was ineffective in numerous ways and that he was deprived of a fair sentencing hearing because of statements made by the victim’s family. We affirm. Not recommended for publication in the official reports.
