S-13-0386, State v. James P. Dragon (Appellant)

Douglas County, Judge Russell Derr

Attorneys: Pro Se Appellant --- Kimberly A. Klein (Attorney General’s Office)

Civil: Postconviction

Proceedings below: The trial court denied Appellant’s motion for postconviction relief without an evidentiary hearing.

Issues: The district court erred in failing to grant Appellant postconviction relief as he had ineffective assistance of counsel who (1) advised Appellant he would not get a life sentence if he entered a plea of guilty and (2) failing to present mitigating evidence at sentencing.
