Summary

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Polk County, Cynthia M. Moisan, District Associate Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Vogel, C.J., and Mullins and Bower, JJ.  Opinion by Vogel, C.J.  (4 pages)

            Jason Donald Hilbert was charged with third-degree theft after taking money from his employer.  He pled guilty to fourth-degree theft and was sentenced to a one-year term of incarceration.  On appeal, he raises two ineffective-assistance-of-counsel claims.  OPINION HOLDS: We find Hilbert failed to assert a cognizable claim for the first ineffective-assistance claim and we preserve the second claim for possible postconviction relief.
