Patrick Williams v. State of Ohio, Case No. 2014-1884
Eighth District Court of Appeals (Cuyahoga County)
-In motion to reopen an appeal, did applicant show good cause for late filing because of his young age, absence of legal training, lack of contact with his appellate lawyer, detrimental reliance on his appellate counsel, and the recent hiring of a new attorney?
-Is an accused entitled to effective appellate counsel to raise specific arguments that his trial attorney was ineffective for failing to ask for a mistrial, for not making a motion to suppress identification evidence, and for not alleging prosecutorial misconduct?
