WI Court of Appeals District II
Case Name: State of Wisconsin v. Christopher L. Jackson
Case No.: 2018AP1820-CR
Officials: Neubauer, C.J., Reilly, P.J., and Gundrum, J.
Focus: Court Error Evidentiary Hearing
Christopher L. Jackson appeals from a judgment of conviction and an order denying his postconviction motions. He contends that the circuit court erred in (1) denying his request for a lesser-included jury instruction; (2) addressing a question of the jury outside the presence of the parties; and (3) denying his claim of ineffective assistance of counsel without an evidentiary hearing. For the reasons that follow, we affirm.
