            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Des Moines County, John G. Linn, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Tabor, P.J., Bower, J., and Blane, S.J.  Opinion by Blane, S.J.  (20 pages)

            Nicholas Cagle appeals his conviction for sexual abuse in the second degree.  He asserts that his trial counsel was ineffective in failing to object to prosecutorial misconduct, failing to lodge foundation and confrontation objections to the admission of a video exhibit, failing to object to claimed vouching testimony by expert witness in support of child witness, and that trial court erred in overruling his hearsay objection to admission of child witness’s recorded pre-trial interview.  OPINION HOLD: Trial counsel was not ineffective, and trial court did not err in admitting video exhibit.  We affirm.
