Listen to recording of oral argument in MP3 format

Issues: Appellee's Statement of the Issues:
Whether the Defendant failed to show there was obvious error stemming from the advisory given at the change of plea hearing related to the nature of the offense and the maximum penalty because the Defendant, after the record demonstrates he had full knowledge of the nature of his offense and the maximum penalty, chose to reaffirm his guilty plea and argue for leniency in his sentence.
Whether the Defendant failed to show there was obvious error related to the factual basis for his plea because the State set forth a basis which satisfied the elements of the offense and the Defendant expressly agreed to the basis.
Whether the Defendant failed to show there was obvious error involving ineffective assistance of counsel, prosecutorial misconduct, or evidence manipulation, because the Defendant presented no credible evidence to support such claims.
