Wackerly v. Workman, No. 07-7034

In a capital habeas matter, denial of the petition is affirmed where petitioner claimed that defense counsel rendered ineffective assistance by failing to investigate and then present evidence of petitioner's drug addiction and alleged mental impairment to the jury during the penalty phase of his trial, but there was no reasonable probability that the evidence he pointed to would have altered his sentence.
