Wisconsin Court of Appeals
Criminal Procedure — ineffective assistance — adjournments
Samuel Moreland appeals a judgment of conviction for first-degree reckless homicide and an order denying his postconviction motion. Moreland seeks a new trial based on: (1) his trial counsel’s failing to present expert testimony to rebut the State’s evidence as to the victim’s cause of death and counsel’s failing to impeach one of the State’s witnesses; (2) the circuit court’s allowing an expert witness for the State to testify regarding a toxicology analysis relying in part on results of tests the expert is professionally familiar with but did not personally perform; and (3) the circuit court’s denying Moreland’s request to adjourn the trial and order the state crime laboratory to retest the victim’s blood. We reject these contentions, and affirm. This opinion will not be published.
