Ineffective Assistance of Counsel

WI Court of Appeals – District III

Case Name: State of Wisconsin v. Michael D. Demars

Case No.: 2019AP892-CR

Officials: Stark, P.J., Hruz and Seidl, JJ.

Focus: Ineffective Assistance of Counsel

Michael Demars appeals from a judgment convicting him of two counts of possession of child pornography and from an order denying his postconviction motion. Demars seeks to withdraw his no-contest pleas on the ground that he was afforded ineffective assistance of counsel. Specifically, Demars contends that his trial counsel should have filed a motion to suppress evidence seized pursuant to a search warrant that Demars maintains was unsupported by probable cause and contained material misstatements of fact. We reject Demars’ claims and affirm the judgment of conviction and postconviction order.
