Opinion Number:
Date Published:
Jun 19, 2019

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Polk County, Robert B. Hanson, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Vogel, C.J., and Mullins and Bower, JJ.  Opinion by Vogel, C.J. (4 pages)

            Michael Gill appeals his conviction and sentence for robbery in the second degree.  On appeal, he asserts his counsel was ineffective for failing to object to a jury instruct on second-degree robbery that did not include the assault element.  OPINION HOLDS: We find Gill has not established prejudice and, therefore, his ineffective-assistance claim fails.
