Court of Appeals Opinion

Opinion Number:
Date Published:
Mar 20, 2019

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Webster County, Angela L. Doyle, District Associate Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Doyle, P.J., Mullins, J., and Carr, S.J.  Opinion by Mullins, J.  (4 pages)

                Darnell Holman appeals his conviction following a guilty plea to assault causing bodily injury and the sentence imposed.  He argues his trial counsel rendered ineffective assistance in allowing him to plead guilty absent a sufficient factual basis to support the charge and the court abused its discretion in sentencing him to reside in a residential correctional facility.  OPINION HOLDS: We find counsel was not ineffective as alleged and no abuse of discretion occurred.  We affirm Holman’s conviction and sentence.
