Court of Appeals of Missouri, Western District, Third Division
September 30, 2014
KEVIN D. ROBERTS, Appellant,
STATE OF MISSOURI, Respondent
Appeal from the Circuit Court of Jackson County, Missouri. Honorable Kathleen A. Forsyth, Judge.
Damien DeLoyola, Kansas City, MO, for Appellant.
Jennifer Rodewald, Jefferson City, MO, for Respondent.
Before Division Three: Gary D. Witt, P.J., Joseph M. Ellis, and Thomas H. Newton, JJ.
Mr. Kevin D. Roberts appeals the judgment denying a Rule 29.15 post-conviction motion. Mr. Roberts claims that trial counsel was ineffective for failing to object to the State's question to him on cross-examination about the credibility of the self-defense story. He further claims that the question was an impermissible comment on post-arrest and pre- Miranda silence.
For reasons stated in the memorandum provided to the parties, we affirm. Rule 84.16(b).
