Date Published:

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Poweshiek County, Randy S. DeGeest, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Potterfield, P.J., and Bower and McDonald, JJ.  Opinion by Bower, J.  (10 pages)

            Charles Phipps appeals his conviction for possession of methamphetamine, third offense.  OPINION HOLDS:  We find Phipps has not shown the district court abused its discretion in denying his motion for new trial based on his claims he was required to wear jail-issued footwear for the trial, there was newly discovered evidence someone else manufactured methamphetamine at his former residence, or the State failed to disclose exculpatory evidence.  We affirm Phipps’s conviction for possession of methamphetamine, third offense.
