Court of Appeals Opinion

Opinion Number:
18-1945
Date Published:
Dec 18, 2019
Summary

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Dickinson County, David A. Lester, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Doyle, P.J., and Tabor and Schumacher, JJ.  Opinion by Doyle, P.J.  (4 pages)

            Eduardo Rodriguez Lopez appeals from the order denying his application for postconviction relief (PCR).  OPINION HOLDS: Rodriguez Lopez’s claim of ineffective assistance of PCR counsel is too general to address on appeal.  He claims his trial counsel was ineffective by admitting he was ready for trial and misusing time and resources fail because he is unable to show prejudice.  He waived a third claim of ineffective assistance of trial counsel, and his claim that the trial court erred in overruling his motion for judgment of acquittal is procedurally barred.
