Court of Appeals Opinion

Opinion Number:
Date Published:
Jan 09, 2019

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Buchanan County, George L. Stigler, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Tabor, P.J., and Mullins and Bower, JJ.  Opinion by Tabor, P.J.  (7 pages)

            David Uchytil appeals his conviction for domestic abuse assault causing bodily injury, claiming trial counsel was ineffective for failing to seek recusal by the trial judge for “overintervention” in the parties’ presentation of the case.  OPINION HOLDS: Finding the record inadequate to resolve this allegation on direct appeal, we affirm Uchytil’s conviction but preserve his ineffective-assistance-of-counsel claim for possible postconviction-relief proceedings.
