Date Published:

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Polk County, Robert B. Hanson, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Vaitheswaran, P.J., and Potterfield and Doyle, JJ.  Opinion by Doyle, J.  (5 pages)

            Terry Bragg appeals the district court’s decision to require he serve the sentence imposed in this case consecutive to his sentence in another case asserting the court considered an impermissible sentencing factor and therefore abused its discretion.  OPINION HOLDS: Upon our review, we find the district court did not abuse its discretion in its decision to require that the ten-year term of incarceration for the second-degree-robbery conviction be served consecutive to Bragg’s other sentence.  Accordingly, we affirm Bragg’s sentence.
