            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Scott County, Henry W. Latham II, Judge, and Mark R. Fowler, District Associate Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Potterfield, P.J., Bower, J., and Mahan, S.J.  Opinion by Mahan, S.J.  (5 pages)

            Rodney Beck appeals from his convictions for driving while barred and driving while suspended, contending his trial counsel was ineffective and the court abused its sentencing discretion.  OPINION HOLDS: Beck has failed to prove counsel was ineffective.  We are able to discern the court’s reasons for the sentence imposed and, thus, find no abuse of discretion.
