Oral Argument 4/25/2019

Highlight

Accomplice to commit extreme indifference murder is a cognizable offense.

District court’s finding that petitioner’s post-conviction claim failed to establish trial counsel’s representation fell below an objective standard of reasonableness was not clearly erroneous.

District court did not abuse its discretion in denying post-conviction petitioner’s request to withdraw his guilty plea where petitioner failed to show a manifest injustice existed necessitating the withdrawal of his guilty plea.
