Court of Appeals Opinion

Opinion Number:
Date Published:
Apr 29, 2020

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Linn County, Mitchell E. Turner, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Mullins, P.J., Schumacher, J., and Danilson, S.J.  Opinion by Danilson, S.J.  (4 pages)

            Vincent Ndikumana appeals the district court decision dismissing his applications for postconviction relief.  OPINION HOLDS: We find further development of the record was not necessary before the court determined whether the applications should be dismissed.  We conclude the district court did not err by dismissing Ndikumana’s applications for postconviction relief because they were not filed within the three-year time period prescribed by Iowa Code section 822.3 (2018).  We affirm the decision of the district court.
