Date Published:

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Scott County, Tom Reidel, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Vogel, C.J., and Mullins and Bower, JJ.  Opinion by Mullins, J. (5 pages)

            Cody Deneve appeals his guilty plea to possession of heroin with intent to deliver, as a habitual offender, contending he received ineffective assistance of counsel.  OPINION HOLDS: We find the record inadequate to decide whether Deneve was prejudiced.  We therefore affirm his conviction but preserve his ineffective-assistance claim for postconviction-relief proceedings.
