Conviction of defendant for drug possession and enhanced sentence based on prior conviction for controlled substance is affirmed where: 1) defendant's claim that his sentencing was delayed in violation of state and federal constitution is without merit as the record shows abundant justification for the delay which was not presumptively prejudicial; and 2) defendant's ineffective assistance of counsel claim is meritless.
