            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Polk County, Sarah Crane, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Doyle, P.J., Tabor, J., and Danilson, S.J.  Opinion by Danilson, S.J.  (5 pages)

            Tony Lopez appeals the district court decision denying his request to withdraw his guilty plea to first-degree robbery.  OPINION HOLDS:  The evidence shows the defendant had full knowledge of the charge against him, as well as his rights and the consequences of a plea of guilty.  We conclude the district court did not abuse its discretion in finding Lopez made a knowing and voluntary plea.  We affirm the district court’s decision denying Lopez’s motion to withdraw his guilty plea.
