Court of Appeals Opinion

Opinion Number:
Date Published:
Apr 15, 2020

            Certiorari to the Iowa District Court for Johnson County, Chad A. Kepros, Judge.  WRIT SUSTAINED AND REMANDED.  Considered by Vaitheswaran, P.J., and Mullins and Ahlers, JJ.  Opinion by Ahlers, J.  (8 pages)

            Eric Peppers petitions for writ of certiorari, claiming he received an illegal sentence.  OPINION HOLDS: Because Peppers was not advised of his right to counsel and did not waive his right to counsel, the district court erred in summarily denying his pro se motion to correct an illegal sentence without adequately addressing the representation issue.  Therefore, we sustain the petition for writ of certiorari and remand for further proceedings.
