Platt Counsel for Petitioner Sharmila Roy Attorney at Law, Laveen By Sharmila Roy Counsel for Respondent STATE v. OSUNA Decision of the Court MEMORANDUM DECISION Presiding Judge Lawrence F. Winthrop, Judge Jennifer B. Campbell, and Judge Paul J. McMurdie delivered the decision of the Court. PER CURIAM: ¶1 Petitioner the State of Arizona seeks review of the superior court’s order granting respondent Alex Osuna’s petition for post-conviction relief, filed pursuant to Arizona Rule of Criminal Procedure 32.1. ¶2 Absent an abuse of discretion or error of law, this court will not disturb a superior court’s ruling on a petition for post-conviction relief. See State v. Gutierrez, 229 Ariz. 573, 577, ¶ 19 (2012). It is a petitioner’s burden to show the superior court abused its discretion in ruling on the petition for post-conviction relief. See State v. Poblete, 227 Ariz. 537, 538, ¶ 1 (App. 2011). ¶3 We have reviewed the record in this matter, the superior court’s order granting the petition for post-conviction relief, and the petition for review. Petitioner has not established an abuse of discretion. ¶4 Accordingly, we grant review but deny relief. AMY M. WOOD • Clerk of the Court FILED: AA 2
