Date Published:

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Chickasaw County, Margaret L. Lingreen, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Vaitheswaran, P.J., Mullins, J., and Potterfield, S.J.  Opinion by Vaitheswaran, P.J.  (6 pages)

            Terry Schott appeals from the district court’s denial of his application for postconviction relief, arguing (1) his trial attorneys were ineffective in connection with plea discussions he rejected; (2) the postconviction court erred in rejecting his claim of newly-discovered evidence; and (3) the postconviction court should have granted a new trial based on the trial court’s denial of his requests for expert witnesses.  OPINION HOLDS: We affirm the court’s denial of Schott’s application for postconviction relief.
