Criminal Procedure — ineffective assistance

Jesus Morelos appeals a judgment of conviction for conspiracy to possess more than 2,500 grams but not more than 10,000 grams of marijuana with intent to deliver. He asserts he received ineffective assistance of trial counsel: (1) as a result of his attorney’s failure to object to a police officer’s testimony purportedly vouching for another witness’s credibility; and (2) as a result of his attorney’s failure to request a jury instruction regarding a witness’s prior criminal convictions. We conclude Morelos received constitutionally sufficient representation at trial and that, regardless, he was not prejudiced by any arguable deficiency. Accordingly, we affirm. This opinion will not be published.
