Court of Appeals Opinion

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Woodbury County, Jeffrey L. Poulson, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Potterfield, P.J., Doyle, J., and Danilson, S.J.  Opinion by Doyle, J.  (5 pages)

            Greg Redden appeals after pleading guilty to operating while intoxicated, assault on a peace officer, and second-degree criminal mischief.  OPINION HOLDS: I. Because Redden’s statements at the plea hearing provide a sufficient factual basis to support his criminal-mischief plea, he has failed to show his counsel was ineffective in allowing him to plead guilty.  II. The sentencing court did not violate Redden’s rights of personal presence and allocution at sentencing on his convictions for OWI and assault on a peace officer where his written guilty pleas plainly and unambiguously waived those rights.
