WI Court of Appeals – District I
Case Name: State of Wisconsin v. David Wayne Ross
Case No.: 2020AP261-CR
Officials: Brash, P.J., Graham and White, JJ.
Focus: Ineffective Assistance of Counsel
David Wayne Ross appeals his judgment of conviction for two counts of second-degree sexual assault. He also appeals the order denying his motion for postconviction relief without a hearing. Ross argues that his trial counsel was ineffective for choosing an unreasonable trial strategy claiming there was evidence of text message manipulation and for failing to object to testimony tying Ross to drugs, drug use, and drug paraphernalia. Further, Ross argues that the real controversy has not been tried. We reject Ross’s arguments and, accordingly, we affirm.
