Tevlin v. Spencer, 09-1894

By FindLaw Staff on October 08, 2010 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

Tevlin v. Spencer, 09-1894, concerned a challenge to the district court's denial of defendant's request for habeas relief from his convictions for first-degree murder, armed robbery, and assault and battery by means of a dangerous weapon.  In affirming the convictions, the court held that the defendant has failed to demonstrate the existence of ineffective assistance of counsel in any of his theories.  The court also held that the Massachusetts discovery procedures are not on their face unconstitutional and defendant has not established that their application here violated due process.
