Schaeffer Cox said in a court filing that the appeal efforts of public defender Suzanne Elliott are ineffective and that she planned to ignore strategies he wanted to use.
Cox was convicted in federal court in June 2012 of nine felonies.
The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner reported he parted ways a month later with his trial lawyer, and Elliott was appointed to represent him in his appeal. Her office had no comment on the case.
Cox in a letter to supporters said he hopes to replace Elliott with Fairbanks attorney Robert John, who represented him against charged filed by the state.
