Court of Appeals Opinion

Date Published:

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Scott County, Joel W. Barrows, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Tabor, P.J., and Mullins and Schumacher, JJ.  Opinion by Schumacher, J. (12 pages)

            Quintin Clemons appeals his conviction for possession or conspiracy to possess marijuana with intent to deliver.  OPINION HOLDS: We determine Clemons’s conviction may be affirmed on the ground he conspired to possess marijuana with intent to deliver, which he has not challenged on appeal.  We also find there is sufficient evidence to support Clemons’s conviction for possession of marijuana with intent to deliver.  We determine Clemons’s claim of ineffective assistance of counsel should be preserved for possible postconviction-relief proceedings because the record is inadequate to address his claim in this direct appeal.  We conclude the district court adequately expressed the reasons for Clemons’s sentence.  We affirm Clemons’s conviction and sentence.
