Where a defendant challenged the denial of post-conviction motion without the appointment of counsel, the motion court clearly erred in denying the defendant’s request since Rule 29.15 requires the appointment of counsel when an indigent defendant files a pro se motion.
Judgment is reversed and remanded.
