Court of Appeals Opinion

Opinion Number:
Date Published:
May 13, 2020

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Story County, Bethany J. Currie, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Vaitheswaran, P.J., and Doyle and May, JJ.  Opinion by Vaitheswaran, P.J. (5 pages)

            Roger McGhee appeals his convictions of third-degree sexual abuse, lascivious acts with a child, and assault with intent to commit sexual abuse.  McGhee (1) challenges the sufficiency of the evidence to support the findings of guilt; (2) contends the district court abused its discretion in admitting certain exhibits that he contends were irrelevant or unfairly prejudicial; and (3) argues the district court considered “unproven offenses when imposing consecutive sentences.”  OPINION HOLDS: We affirm McGhee’s judgment and sentence.
