Summary

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Scott County, John D. Telleen and Henry W. Latham II, Judges.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Potterfield, P.J., and Tabor and Bower, JJ.  Opinion by Potterfield, P.J.  (6 pages)

            Quayshan Moore appeals following a jury trial that resulted in convictions for possession of crack cocaine with intent to deliver, failure to affix a drug tax stamp, possession of a firearm by a domestic violence offender, carrying weapons, interference with official acts, and assault causing bodily injury.  Moore challenges the sentences imposed and claims trial counsel was ineffective in stipulating that he was a prohibited person and in failing to challenge the sufficiency of the evidence of his intent to deliver cocaine.  OPINION HOLDS: The court stated adequate reasons for imposing consecutive sentences.  The record is not sufficient to address his ineffectiveness claim as to the stipulation.  Because there is substantial evidence from which the jury could find an intent to deliver, Moore cannot show he was prejudiced by counsel’s failure to challenge evidence of intent.
