            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Mahaska County, Rose Anne Mefford, District Associate Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Potterfield, P.J., and Tabor and Bower, JJ.  Opinion by Potterfield, P.J.  (7 pages)

            K.E. appeals after being adjudicated a delinquent for theft in the second degree, possession of stolen property, in violation of Iowa Code sections 714.1(1), 714.1(4), and 714.2(2) (2017).  He alleges the State failed to prove the theft occurred within the statute of limitations, trial counsel was ineffective in failing to move for a judgment of acquittal, and there is insufficient evidence K.E. knew the four-wheeler in his possession was stolen.  OPINION HOLDS: The State proved the delinquent act occurred in June 2017, and there is substantial evidence K.E. believed the vehicle in his possession was stolen.  We affirm.
