Counsel – Ineffective Assistance – (Cross-)Examination of Witness with Respect to Immunity Grant

State v. Dion W. Demmerly, 2006 WI App 181, PFR filed 9/11/06

For Demmerly: Edward J. Hunt

Issue/Holding: Counsel’s cross-examination of state’s witness testifying under a grant of immunity was adequate where it revealed that the witness’s motivation for testifying was a desire to receive leniency on his pending charges, ¶22; and, also where any confusion about the grant of immunity was clarified by the trial court’s accurate admonition to the jury on the matter, ¶22.
