Cianciola v. Dittmann, 09-1867

District court's denial of defendant's request for habeas relief from a conviction for sexual assault of a child is affirmed where defendant's Sixth Amendment ineffective assistance of counsel claim fails as he falls short of establishing that he was prejudiced by anything his trial counsel did or didn't do.
