Petitioner Frederick White appeals the district court's dismissal of his habeas corpus petition, filed pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2254. In the petition, White challenges his 1989 state convictions for aggravated murder with a firearm specification, felonious assault with a firearm specification, and possession of a weapon under disability, alleging that his appellate counsel rendered constitutionally ineffective assistance. The district court dismissed the petition on the ground of procedural default, finding that the petitioner had failed to raise the issue of ineffective assistance of counsel within the time limit set by Ohio App. R. 26(B). The district court further found that White was unable to show cause and prejudice for the default.
