Court of Appeals Opinion

Opinion Number:
Date Published:
Dec 18, 2019

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Dubuque County, Robert J. Richter, District Associate Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Bower, C.J., and May and Greer, JJ.  Opinion by Greer, J.  (4 pages)

            Antoine Grisson Jr. appeals his sentence for burglary in the third degree, arguing the district court based its sentence on improper factors and insufficient justifications.  OPINION HOLDS: The district court considered the parties’ sentencing recommendations—not rejected plea offers—as well as the facts of the case and the statutory sentencing factors when imposing the sentence.  Because the judge did not consider improper factors or abuse his discretion, we affirm Grisson’s sentence.
