Fourth § 974.06 motion is barred under Escalona-Naranjo

State v. Jermaine D. Greer, Sr., 2015AP692, District 4, 7/21/16 (one-judge decision; ineligible for publication); case activity (including briefs)

Greer filed a pro se motion for postconviction relief under § 974.06. It is his fourth postconviction motion and—like his third postconviction motion, which he also filed pro se—it argued he is entitled to withdraw his pleas. Greer doesn’t explain why the grounds for plea withdrawal he raises in his fourth motion could not have been raised in his third motion, so the motion is barred under State v. Escalona-Naranjo, 185 Wis. 2d 168, 185-86, 517 N.W.2d 157 (1994) (claims that could have been raised in a previous §§ 974.02 or 974.06 motion are barred from being raised in a subsequent § 974.06 motion absent a showing of sufficient reason why the claims were not previously raised).
