Watson failed to support his failure to investigate claim with sworn statements from potential
witnesses, see Richie, 88 Hawaii at 39, 960 P.2d at 1247, and (d) trial counsel's decision to forgo Ornellas as a witness
was not a result of a conflict of interest, but appears to be a strategic decision inasmuch as Ornellas's story was inconsistent
and trial counsel believed it would damage Watson's defense, and, thus, will not be second-guessed by this court, see id.
at 40, 960 P.2d at 1248.
