Date Published:

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Carroll County, Joseph McCarville, District Associate Judge.  CONVICTION AFFIRMED, SENTENCE VACATED, AND REMANDED FOR RESENTENCING.  Considered by Bower, C.J., and May and Greer, JJ.  Opinion by May, J.  (3 pages)

            Travis Barker appeals his conviction and sentence after pleading guilty to assault.  He argues the sentencing procedure was defective and counsel was ineffective.  OPINION HOLDS: We find Barker did not knowingly and intentionally waive his right of allocution.  So we must remand for resentencing.  And we preserve his ineffective-assistance claim for a future postconviction proceeding.
