            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Warren County, Kevin Parker, District Associate Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Vaitheswaran, P.J., Doyle, J., and Carr, S.J.  Opinion by Carr, S.J.  (6 pages)

            Mackinzie Standlee-Campbell appeals her conviction for domestic abuse assault causing bodily injury.  She asserts the district court violated her constitutional right to present a defense when it excluded evidence of the victim’s prior bad acts and her conviction is not supported by sufficient evidence.  OPINION HOLDS: Standlee-Campbell did not preserve her argument about her right to present a defense for our review, and even if we were to consider the issue, she cannot show the probative value of the evidence substantially outweighs the danger of unfair prejudice.  Also, the evidence is sufficient for the jury to reject her self-defense claim and find she committed domestic abuse assault causing bodily injury.  Therefore, we affirm.
