Wisconsin Court of Appeals
Criminal Procedure — ineffective assistance
Carnell Lamara Pearson appeals the judgment entered on jury verdicts convicting him of armed burglary, see Wis. Stat. § 943.10(2)(a), and second-degree recklessly endangering safety while armed, see Wis. Stat. §§ 941.30(2) & 939.63, both as party to a crime, see Wis. Stat. § 939.05. He also appeals the trial court’s order denying his motion for postconviction relief without a hearing. Pearson contends that: (1) his trial lawyer was constitutionally ineffective; and (2) the trial court improperly excluded evidence that the victim sold marijuana to a friend of her incarcerated boyfriend the day before the armed burglary. We affirm. Publication in the official reports is not recommended.
