Assignment of Error

  1. The Court of Appeals erred in finding that the trial court did not abuse its discretion by denying appellant's motion for continuance to retain counsel of his own choosing after appellant's appointed attorney indicated that she would be unavailable to represent him during sentencing proceedings should the trial court convict him in violation of the Sixth and Fourteenth Amendments [sic] to the United States Constitution.
