Date Published:

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Woodbury County, Timothy T. Jarman, District Associate Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Doyle, P.J., and Mullins and McDonald, JJ.  Opinion by Mullins, J.  (3 pages)

            Mikala Webster appeals her conviction of operating while intoxicated.  She argues the district court erred in denying her motion to dismiss on statute-of-limitations grounds.  On appeal, she argues Iowa Code section 802.6(1) (2013) violates the due process and equal protection clauses of the state and federal constitutions.  OPINION HOLDS: We agree with the State that Webster has failed to preserve error on her constitutional claims, as they were not raised in nor decided by the district court.  We affirm the denial of her motion to dismiss and her conviction.
