            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Hamilton County, Paul B. Ahlers, District Associate Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Vaitheswaran, P.J., and Doyle and May, JJ.  Ahlers, J., takes no part.  Opinion by Doyle, J.  (4 pages)

            Clint Braun appeals after pleading guilty to one count of forgery, claiming his counsel was ineffective by failing to object to the prosecutor’s alleged breach of the plea agreement.  OPINION HOLDS: Braun has failed to show his counsel breached an essential duty by failing to object.  The record does not show the prosecutor breached the plea agreement by implying a material reservation, as Braun alleges.
