Case No. 17-1147

State of Iowa
Rodney L. Hanneman

Rodney Hanneman seeks further review after the court of appeals affirmed his conviction for theft in the second degree following a jury trial. Hanneman contends the State presented insufficient evidence to prove he committed theft by taking in violation of Iowa Code section 714.1(1). Hanneman argues the State must prove he acquired the property from the owner’s possession, not only that he acquired the property without the owner’s consent.
