McAfee v. Thurmer, No. 09-1230

By FindLaw Staff on December 08, 2009 3:32 PM

Denial of defendant's petition for habeas relief from a conviction and life sentence for the first degree murder of a police officer 13 years ago is affirmed as defendant's trial counsel's performance was not constitutionally ineffective, and even if deficient performance could be found, defendant cannot show that there is a reasonable probability that the result of the trial would have been different but for counsel's shortcomings.
