Commonwealth v. Webb

Pennsylvania Superior Court

August 10, 2020

In Commonwealth v. Webb, the Superior Court confronted an appeal from the denial of a PCRA petition. The Court held that the petitioner could not establish ineffective assistance of counsel where trial counsel voluntarily brought up the petitioner’s low-level drug dealing. Furthermore, the Court found that a witness gave detailed testimony, which could prove murder, and in order to establish self-defense, the petitioner needed to prove that he sold drugs to that witness as a way to show that the witness might not have been able to accurately recall the incident.
