            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Black Hawk County, Linda M. Fangman, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Tabor, P.J., and Mullins and May, JJ.  Opinion by Tabor, P.J.  (7 pages)

            Jaevon Holmes appeals his conviction for escape under Iowa Code section 719.4(1) (2017).  He contends the evidence at his bench trial supported only the lesser offense of absence from custody under Iowa Code section 719.4(3).  OPINION HOLDS: Because ample evidence backs the district court’s determination Holmes intentionally and without permission left the work-release facility where he was held after violating parole on his felony convictions, we affirm.
