Summary

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Woodbury County, Duane E. Hoffmeyer, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Vogel, P.J., McDonald, J., and Blane, S.J.  Opinion by Blane, S.J.  (16 pages)

            Defendant Hanslip appeals his convictions of being a felon in possession of a firearm and possession of an offensive weapon.  He contends the trial court erred in admission of claimed hearsay and in denial of his attorney’s motion to withdraw from representation due to a conflict.  OPINION HOLDS: (1) Trial court properly overruled defense counsel’s hearsay objection since the evidence was properly admitted under the excited utterance exception; and (2) trial court properly denied the defense counsel’s motion to withdraw following a hearing, when it removed attorney from same public defender office from representing a State’s witness in an unrelated case.
