Court of Appeals Opinion

Opinion Number:
Date Published:
Feb 05, 2020

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Black Hawk County, Linda M. Fangman, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Bower, C.J., and May and Greer, JJ.  Opinion by Bower, C.J.  (3 pages)

            Davonus Smart argues the court abused its discretion by imposing the minimum fine and that his written guilty plea with unidentified written notations on it should be set aside.  OPINION HOLDS: Smart has failed to overcome the presumption of regularity in sentencing, and we therefore affirm.  Smart failed to file a motion in arrest of judgment challenging the written notations on the plea agreement, so we do not reach the merits of his additional complaint.
