Myers v. StateAnnotate this Case
After a jury trial, Appellants Michael Myers and Scott Hall were convicted of several drug-related crimes. Appellants' convictions were affirmed by the court of appeals. Appellants subsequently filed petitions for postconviction relief, alleging ineffective assistance of counsel. The trial court entered orders denying postconviction relief as to both Appellants. The Supreme Court affirmed the denial of postconviction relief, holding that Appellants failed to meet their burden under Washington v. Strickland by failing to demonstrate that their counsel was deficient or that, if counsel was deficient, there was a reasonable probability that, but for counsel's errors, the fact-finder would have had a reasonable doubt respecting guilt.
