Court of Appeals of Missouri, Western District, First Division
November 18, 2014
ANTWAIN D. GRAY, Appellant,
STATE OF MISSOURI, Respondent
Appeal from the Circuit Court of Jackson County, Missouri. Honorable John M. Torrence, Judge.
For Appellant: S. Kate Webber, Kansas City, MO.
For Respondent: Todd Smith, Jefferson City, MO.
Before Division One: Thomas H. Newton, P.J., Lisa White Hardwick, and Anthony Rex Gabbert, JJ.
Mr. Antwain D. Gray appeals the judgment denying a Rule 24.035 post-conviction motion. Mr. Gray claims that he relied on a statement from plea counsel as to the likely duration of his sentence when entering a guilty plea. He further claims that he was thereby prejudiced because, had he understood that the sentence could be longer than plea counsel stated, he would not have waived his right to a trial.
For reasons stated in the memorandum provided to the parties, we affirm. Rule 84.16(b).
