Adams to claim his attorney was ineffective
DIXON – Convicted killer Byron Adams plans to file a motion claiming ineffective assistance of counsel as he seeks a new trial and a reconsideration of his 60-year sentence.
Because the motion was not filed by Thursday, the hearing that was to be held that day was moved to April 5. His attorney, David Mandrgoc, was unable to met with Adams until Thursday, he told Lee County Associate Judge Charles Beckman.
Mandrgoc said he mailed a letter to Adams on Jan. 31 that his client did not get until Feb. 25 because Joliet Correctional Center, where he is being held, apparently takes about a month to sort mail.
