Date Published:

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Scott County, Marlita A. Greve, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Bower, C.J., and Vaitheswaran and Doyle, JJ.  Opinion by Vaitheswaran, J.  (9 pages)

            Albert Ware appeals the district court’s denial of his application for postconviction relief, arguing that the use of unreliable scientific Federal Bureau of Investigation testimony undermined his right to a fair trial and arguing that the exclusion of the testimony would probably have changed the result of the trial. OPINION HOLDS: Because error was not preserved on the fair trial issue and because the result of the trial would probably have been the same due to adequately corroborated accomplice testimony, we affirm.
