Wilson, Jr. v. Warden, No. 14-10681 (11th Cir. 2014)Annotate this Case
Petitioner, sentenced to death for committing murder, appealed the denial of his petition for a writ of habeas corpus, arguing that he was deprived of a fair trial where his counsel provided ineffective assistance during the penalty phase of his trial. The court concluded that the Supreme Court of Georgia' denial of the petition was not contrary to, or involved an unreasonable application of, clearly established Federal law, as determined by the Supreme Court of the United States where reasonable jurists could rule that the additional mitigation evidence was largely cumulative of the other evidence of petitioner's neglectful childhood. Accordingly, the court affirmed the denial of the petition.
