Date Published:
Feb 19, 2020
Summary

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Johnson County, Christopher L. Bruns, Judge.  SENTENCE VACATED AND REMANDED.  Considered by Vaitheswaran, P.J., May, J., and Scott, S.J.  Opinion by Scott, S.J.  (6 pages)

            Saleh Nasr appeals the sentence imposed upon his criminal conviction, arguing the court abused its discretion by employing a fixed sentencing policy.  OPINION HOLDS: While this is a close case, the court’s words, at a minimum, give the appearance of a fixed sentencing policy.  As a result, we choose to take the cautious route and vacate the sentence and remand for resentencing.
