Whether the denial of defendant’s petition for postconviction relief was not erroneous because the evidence was not newly discovered evidence?
Defendant Onyelobi appealed the denial of her petition for postconviction relief without a hearing. The Minnesota Supreme Court held that her co-defendant’s affidavit that he did not tell her that he was going to shoot the victim was not newly discovered evidence because she was present when the events the evidence purports to describe occurred.
State v. Onyelobi, A21-0517, Hennepin County, Minnesota Supreme Court.
Minnesota Criminal Defense Lawyer Lynne Torgerson was not attorney of record in this case.
