Court of Appeals Opinion

Opinion Number:
Date Published:
May 15, 2019

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Pottawattamie County, Craig M. Dreismeier, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Potterfield, P.J., and Tabor and Bower, JJ.  Opinion by Tabor, J.  (3 pages)

            Gregory Kuchera appeals his conviction for carrying a concealed weapon.  He alleges his trial counsel in guilty plea proceedings was ineffective in failing to request withdrawal of his guilty plea when his statements showed he was confused and potentially incompetent.  OPINION HOLDS: Because the record is inadequate on direct appeal, we preserve the claims for postconviction-relief proceedings.
