            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Black Hawk County, Andrea J. Dryer, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Bower, C.J., and May and Greer, JJ.  Opinion by May, J.  (3 pages)

            Daniel Claybon appeals the dismissal of his fifth postconviction-relief (PCR) application.  He asks this court to apply the supreme court’s holding in State v. Lyle, 854 N.W.2d 378, 400–04 (Iowa 2014), to adult offenders.  OPINION HOLDS: Our caselaw has continuously rejected claims that the juvenile sentencing scheme should be extended to adult offenders.  We affirm the PCR court’s dismissal of Claybon’s application.
