            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Scott County, Nancy S. Tabor, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Bower, C.J., May, J., and Scott, S.J.  Tabor, J., takes no part.  Opinion by Scott, S.J.  (3 pages)

Joseph Jackson appeals his conviction of possession of contraband in a correctional institution, arguing the sentencing court erroneously concluded he was being sentenced “for a crime committed while confined in a detention facility or penal institution,” and as such ordering he serve his sentence consecutively to his already existing sentence.  OPINION HOLDS: We affirm the sentence imposed.
