Criminal Procedure — plea withdrawal — ineffective assistance

Reginald Scott Williams appeals from a judgment, entered upon his pleas of no-contest, convicting him of one count of homicide by negligent use of a vehicle, contrary to Wis. Stat. § 940.10(1) (2009-10),[1] and one count of reckless driving causing great bodily harm, contrary to Wis. Stat. § 346.62(4). Williams also appeals from the order denying his motion for postconviction relief. Williams argues that his conviction should be vacated and his pleas should be withdrawn, or alternatively, that he should be resentenced, based on trial counsel ineffectiveness and newly-discovered evidence. Williams also contends that his sentence was unduly harsh. We affirm. Not recommended for publication in the official reports.
