Defendant appealed the denial of his post-conviction motion alleging ineffective assistance of counsel. Defendant had alleged that trial counsel failed to convey the state’s plea offers and failed to inform him of additional witness statements.
Where the trial court credited counsel’s testimony that he discussed the plea offers with defendant and reviewed all discovery with defendant, defendant’s claim of ineffective assistance of counsel failed.
Judgment is affirmed.
