No. 07-290            State v. DeWeldon                                                               (show cause)


The petitioner appeals pro se from the denial of his application for postconviction relief.  The petitioner contends that newly discovered evidence warrants vacating his conviction for third degree sexual assault.  He also contends that his conviction should be vacated because he was not informed of the possibility that he could face civil commitment in the state of Massachusetts.
