Newly Discovered Evidence.

Byline: Derek Hawkins

WI Court of Appeals District II

Case Name: State of Wisconsin v. Thomas J. Blake

Case No.: 2018AP592

Officials: Neubauer, C.J., Reilly, P.J., and Gundrum, J.

Focus: Newly Discovered Evidence

Thomas J. Blake appeals, pro se, from an order of the circuit court denying his WIS. STAT. 974.06 (2017-18) postconviction motion. As we reject all of Blake's arguments on the basis of State v. Romero Georgana, 2014 WI 83, 360 Wis. 2d 522, 849 N.W.2d 668, we affirm.

In Blake's current appeal, he argues that the circuit court erred in denying his WIS. STAT. 974.06 motion. He renews some of the arguments he made in his 974.06 motion to the circuit court, others he fails to renew on appeal, and some he brings for the first time. He asks that this court "suppress and dismiss any and all evidence pertaining to Blake's investigation and conviction," reverse his no contest plea, and set a trial date. We reject Blake's arguments for the following reasons. Based on our review, it appears that Blake's arguments can be narrowed into three general claims: (1) ineffective assistance of counsel, (2) newly discovered evidence, and (3) the circuit court's error in denying his WIS. STAT. 974.06 motion.
