Frazier v. StateAnnotate this Case
After a jury trial, Appellant was convicted of attempted first-degree murder, two counts of aggravated assault, and possession of a firearm. The court of appeals affirmed. Appellant subsequently filed a petition for postconviction relief, asserting that he was deprived of the effective assistance of counsel. The circuit court denied relief. Appellant appealed, repeating the allegations of error described in his petition for postconviction relief, but also raising new allegations of ineffective assistance of counsel. The Supreme Court affirmed, holding (1) Appellant's ineffective-assistance-of-counsel claims that were not raised before were not properly raised on appeal; and (2) the circuit court properly denied relief on Appellant's remaining claims.
