WI Court of Appeals – District II
Case Name: State of Wisconsin v. Jameil A. Garrett
Case No.: 2019AP852
Officials: Neubauer, C.J., Reilly, P.J., and Gundrum, J.
Focus: Ineffective Assistance of Counsel
The State appeals an order granting Jameil Garrett a new trial after two postconviction motions alleging ineffective assistance of trial and postconviction counsel for not calling alibi witnesses. The State argues that Garrett did not sufficiently prove that he was prejudiced. We agree and reverse the order and remand with directions that Garrett’s conviction be reinstated.
