Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Scott County, Henry W. Latham II, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Potterfield, P.J., Bower, J., and Mahan, S.J.  Opinion by Potterfield, P.J. (19 pages)

           Darrell McBride appeals from his convictions for two counts of sexual abuse in the third degree, in violation of Iowa Code section 709.4(1)(b)(2) (2016).  McBride maintains there is insufficient evidence to support either conviction.  He also challenges two of the district court’s evidentiary rulings and maintains he should have been granted a new trial due to juror bias.  OPINION HOLDS: Because substantial evidence supports both of McBride’s convictions, he has not established that the district court wrongly decided his evidentiary objections, and the district court did not abuse its discretion in denying his motion for new trial on the basis of juror bias, we affirm.
