Court of Appeals Opinion

Opinion Number:
Date Published:
Oct 09, 2019

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Woodbury County, Duane E. Hoffmeyer, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Vaitheswaran, P.J., and Doyle and Bower, JJ.  Opinion by Doyle, J. (5 pages)

            Ivie Popplewell appeals his conviction for second-degree theft.  OPINION HOLDS: Because the record before the district court at the time of the plea provides a sufficient basis for finding Popplewell committed theft under Iowa Code section 714.1(4) (2018), his counsel was not ineffective in allowing him to plead guilty.
