Wong v. Belmontes, No. 08-1263

By FindLaw Staff on November 16, 2009 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

In capital habeas proceedings, a circuit court's order requiring the petition to be granted is reversed where petitioner did not establish that defense counsel prejudiced petitioner by providing him ineffective assistance at the penalty phase of his trial, because petitioner failed to show a reasonable probability that the jury would have rejected a capital sentence after it weighed the entire body of mitigating evidence against the entire body of aggravating evidence.
