Criminal Practice – Constitutional – Right to Counsel – Waiver – Knowing & Intelligent – Insufficient Showing (access required)

State v. Anderson Where our Court of Appeals held, Even though defendant executed a written waiver of counsel which was certified by the trial court, since the trial court failed to clarify the specific charges against defendant, to inform him of potential punishments, or explicitly to inform defendant that he could request court-appointed counsel, defendant has shown that the trial court failed to determine whether defendant knowingly, intelligently and voluntarily waived his right to counsel, we affirm.
