            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Scott County, Mary E. Howes, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Potterfield, P.J., and Doyle and Tabor, JJ.  Opinion by Potterfield, P.J.  (4 pages)

            Terrence Watson appeals the sentence imposed upon his conviction for failure to comply with the sex-offender registry requirements, second or subsequent offense, in violation of Iowa Code sections 692A.113(1)(f) and 692A.111(1) (2018), enhanced as a habitual offender pursuant to sections 902.8 and 902.9(3).  Watson contends the district court failed to consider the minimum essential factors and provide sufficient reasons for the sentence imposed.  OPINION HOLDS: The sentence is within statutory limits, and we find no abuse of the court’s sentencing discretion.
