State v. Shore, 258 N.C. App. 660 (Apr. 3, 2018)

Finding the record in this child sexual assault case insufficient to rule on the defendant’s ineffective assistance of counsel claim, the court denied the claim without prejudice to the defendant’s right to assert it in a MAR proceeding. The defendant argued that he received ineffective assistance of counsel when his lawyer elicited evidence of guilt that the State had not introduced. Specifically, he argued that while the State only elicited testimony from the victim about one instance of sexual intercourse with the defendant, defense counsel asked the victim a leading question implying that she had sex with the defendant on two occasions.
