Redden v. DelawareAnnotate this Case
Defendant Tyrone Redden appealed the Superior Court’s Order denying his Amended Motion for Postconviction Relief. At issue in this appeal were two out-of-court statements introduced at Redden’s trial. In his Motion, Redden argued that his trial counsel was ineffective for failing to object to the statements after the State failed to ask each witness whether his or her out-of-court statement was truthful. Redden further argued that his appellate counsel was ineffective for failing to raise the same issue on direct appeal. The Superior Court denied the Amended Motion, holding that Redden’s claims were procedurally barred. After review, the Supreme Court agreed with the Superior Court that Redden’s claims were procedurally barred and affirmed the denial of Redden’s Motion.
