Rea v. State (Majority)Annotate this Case
After a jury trial, Appellant was found guilty of four counts of computer exploitation of a child in the first degree and of twenty counts of distributing, possessing, or viewing matter depicting sexually explicit conduct involving a child. The Supreme Court affirmed. Thereafter, Appellant filed a petition for postconviction relief under Ark. R. Crim. P. 37.1, alleging ineffective assistance of counsel. The trial court denied relief. Appellant appealed and filed a pro se motion for extension of time to file brief, motion for certified copies of records, and motion to use twelve-point typeface. The Supreme Court dismissed the appeal and declared the motions filed in relation to the appeal moot, holding that Appellant failed to establish that either trial counsel or appellate counsel was ineffective.
