            Scott Marinovic appeals the denial of his application for post-conviction relief.  OPINION HOLDS: Marinovic’s counsel did not provide ineffective assistance by allowing Marinovic to plead guilty to second-degree theft or in representing him during probation-revocation proceedings.  Nor did counsel provide ineffective assistance by failing to raise a meritless constitutional claim.
