            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Winnebago County, Gregg R. Rosenbladt, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Heard by Vaitheswaran, P.J., and Doyle and May, JJ.  Opinion by Doyle, J.  (12 pages)

            Chad Bonner appeals from convictions on two counts of second-degree sexual abuse following a bench trial.  OPINION HOLDS: Viewing the evidence in the light most favorable to the State, we conclude substantial evidence supports Bonner’s second-degree sexual abuse convictions.  We do not find the district court abused its discretion when it excluded Bonner’s proffered evidence or when it overruled Bonner’s motion for new trial based on newly discovered evidence.  We therefore affirm Bonner’s convictions.  We do not address his claim of ineffective assistance of counsel in this direct appeal.
