            Justin Steil appeals several criminal convictions, following guilty pleas, and the imposition of consecutive sentences upon two of his convictions.  OPINION HOLDS: Steil agrees supreme court precedent defeats his ability to challenge the effectiveness of his counsel, and we conclude the court provided sufficient reasons for its decision to impose consecutive sentences.
