Court of Appeals of Missouri, Eastern District, Third Division
February 11, 2014
BRANDON MCKINNEY, Movant/Appellant,
STATE OF MISSOURI, Respondent
Appeal from the Circuit Court of the City of St. Louis. 1122-CC02270. Honorable Thomas C. Clark II.
FOR APPELLANT: Gwenda Renee Robinson, Missouri Public Defender Office, St. Louis, MO.
FOR RESPONDENT: Chris Koster, Attorney General, Robert Jefferson Bartholomew, Jr., Assistant Attorney General, Jefferson City, MO.
Before Mary K. Hoff, P.J., Kurt S. Odenwald, J., and Angela T. Quigless, J.
Brandon McKinney appeals from the motion court's Findings of Fact, Conclusions of Law, and Judgment denying his Rule 29.15 Amended Motion to Vacate, Set Aside, or Correct Judgment and Sentence and Request for Evidentiary Hearing, alleging ineffective assistance of appellate counsel. We affirm.
We have reviewed the briefs of the parties, the legal file, and the record on appeal and find the claims of error to be without merit. No error of law appears.
An extended opinion reciting the detailed facts and restating the principles of law applicable to this case would serve no jurisprudential or precedential purpose. We have, however, provided a memorandum opinion for the use of the parties setting forth the reasons for our decision. We affirm the judgment pursuant to Rule 84.16(b).
