NATURE OF CASE
This is a postconviction appeal. Joshua G. Alfredson was convicted by a jury of first degree sexual assault and second degree false imprisonment. He was sentenced to 15 to 20 years’ imprisonment for first degree sexual assault and 1 year’s imprisonment for second degree false imprisonment, to be served concurrently. On direct appeal, his convictions and sentences were affirmed.
Alfredson now appeals the district court’s July 24, 2012, dismissal of all but one of his claims for postconviction relief without an evidentiary hearing. An evidentiary hearing was held on trial counsel’s failure to disclose an alleged plea offer. Alfredson also appeals the district court’s December 11 denial of his ineffective assistance of counsel claim based on those allegations. We affirm.
The facts adduced at Alfredson’s trial are discussed in greater detail in State v. Alfredson, and are limited herein to the facts pertinent to Alfredson’s appealed postconviction claims. The sexual assault and false imprisonment took place in Alfredson’s apartment on April 5, 2009. The victim testified that on that date, Alfredson, with whom she had previously had a sexual relationship, became increasingly angry.
