WV: Def can’t show abuse of discretion for trial court to not consider oral motion to suppress instead of a written one

Defendant can’t show an abuse of discretion from the trial judge’s declining to consider an oral motion to suppress. The rule says it’s in the discretion of the trial court. State v. Gaiser, 2018 W. Va. LEXIS 370 (May 14, 2018).*

Everything in the record contradicts defendant’s assertion that his counsel was ineffective for not pursuing a motion to suppress that could not win. He knowingly waived the suppression issue. United States v. Williams, 2018 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 80768 (D. Minn. May 14, 2018).*
