By FindLaw Staff on October 27, 2009 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

Denial of a petition for habeas relief brought by a defendant convicted of sexual assault and false imprisonment is affirmed as defendant's ineffective assistance of counsel claim is rejected as he failed to offer some basis for the court to believe that a witness was available to testify to the victim's sexual orientation and that there was a reasonable probability that this witness's testimony would have made a difference in the outcome of the trial.
