In a robbery prosecution, denial of petitioner's habeas petition is affirmed where: 1) the record clearly showed that defense counsel based his decision not to seek a severance of petitioner's trial on his general denial defense, not on any mistaken understanding about the admissibility of petitioner's conviction prior to trial; and 2) thus, counsel did not render ineffective assistance.
