Date Published:

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Polk County, Kevin A. Parker, District Associate Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Tabor, P.J., and Mullins and Schumacher, JJ.  Opinion by Schumacher, J.  (7 pages)

            Darien Sims appeals the district court decision revoking his deferred judgment on a charge of forgery and sentencing him.  OPINION HOLDS: We conclude the district court did not abuse its discretion in revoking Sims’s deferred judgment, as he admitted he violated terms of his probation.  We also find the district court did not improperly consider an unproven or unprosecuted offense when sentencing him.  We affirm the decision of the district court.
