Adam Winarske, Petitioner and Appellant
State of North Dakota, Respondent and Appellee
Appeal from the District Court of Stark County, Southwest Judicial District, the Honorable William A. Herauf, Judge.
Lynn Slaathaug Moen, Mayville, ND, for petitioner and appellant; submitted on brief.
James Allen Hope, Assistant State's Attorney, Dickinson, ND, for respondent and appellee; submitted on brief.
Gerald W. VandeWalle, C.J., Dale V. Sandstrom, Daniel J. Crothers, Lisa Fair McEvers, Carol Ronning Kapsner.
[¶1] Adam Winarske appealed a district court judgment denying his application for post-conviction relief. Winarske argued he is entitled to post-conviction relief because he received ineffective assistance of counsel, his guilty pleas were not knowingly, intelligently, and voluntarily given, and he was denied effective assistance of counsel at all stages of the proceedings. We summarily affirm under N.D.R.App.P. 35.1(a)(2), concluding the district court did not err in dismissing Winarske's application for post-conviction relief, after an evidentiary hearing.
