Date Published:

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Boone County, Stephen A. Owen, District Associate Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Bower, C.J., and May and Greer, JJ.  Opinion by Bower, C.J.  (3 pages)

            Ronald Steenhoek entered a written plea of guilty to the charge of assault causing bodily injury.  Steenhoek appeals, claiming trial counsel was ineffective in failing to file a motion to dismiss the trial information because it did not give adequate notice concerning a burglary charge and in failing to take depositions.  OPINION HOLDS: Steenhoek’s first ineffective-assistance claim fails, and the record is inadequate to address the second.  We affirm.
