Wisconsin Court of Appeals


Criminal Procedure — ineffective assistance

Christopher Petrie appeals a judgment of conviction for two counts of repeated sexual assault of a child, and an order denying his postconviction motion. Petrie argues there was insufficient evidence to convict him of count one. He also argues he received ineffective assistance of counsel.

The State concedes, and we agree, that there was insufficient evidence to convict as to victim Shandar P. That conviction is therefore reversed and we remand for the court to enter a judgment of acquittal. However, we reject Petrie’s ineffective assistance of counsel argument and affirm his conviction as to victim Shawna P. This opinion will not be published.
