Court of Appeals Opinion

Opinion Number:
Date Published:
May 15, 2019

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Scott County, Nancy S. Tabor, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Vaitheswaran, P.J., and Potterfield and Doyle, JJ.  Tabor, J., takes no part.  Opinion by Doyle, J.  (5 pages)

            Darin Godfrey appeals the summary dismissal of his application for postconviction relief.  OPINION HOLDS: Because Godfrey seeks to challenge his requirement to register for the sex offender registry, which has not yet been formally determined by the Iowa Department of Public Safety, the issue is not ripe for review, and summary dismissal was appropriate.  In addition, Godfrey’s second claim of ineffective assistance of counsel is without merit.
