Summary

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Marshall County, Kim M. Riley, District Associate Judge.  AFFIRMED. Considered by Potterfield, P.J., Doyle, J., and Mahan, S.J.  Opinion by Potterfield, P.J.  (4 pages)

            Randall Clemens appeals from his convictions for domestic abuse assault by strangulation, second-degree harassment, and interference with official acts causing bodily injury.  He asserts the trial court erred in admitting the recording of a 911 call.  OPINION HOLDS: We find no error in the court’s ruling that the recording was admissible under the present-sense-impression exception to the hearsay rule.
