Court of Appeals Opinion

Opinion Number:
Date Published:
Oct 09, 2019

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Polk County, Sarah Crane, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Vaitheswaran, P.J., and Doyle and Bower, JJ.  Opinion by Bower, J.  (6 pages)

            Jordan Gustafson appeals his conviction for stalking in violation of Iowa Code section 708.11 (2018).  He claims the evidence does not prove beyond a reasonable doubt he “purposefully engaged in a course of conduct” to fall within the stalking statute, one of the incidents did not imply a threat of harm, and the felony enhancement should not apply to his conviction.  OPINION HOLDS: Because substantial evidence supports the conviction, we affirm the district court’s ruling.
