Court of Appeals Opinion

Opinion Number:
Date Published:
Jun 17, 2020

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Des Moines County, Michael J. Schilling, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Tabor, P.J., Greer, J., and Carr, S.J.  Opinion by Greer, J. (5 pages)

            Calvon Miles appeals from his convictions for willful injury causing bodily injury and carrying weapons.  Miles contends he received ineffective assistance from trial counsel when counsel failed to object to the marshalling instruction for willful injury causing bodily injury, which did not include all of the necessary elements.  OPINION HOLDS: Under these facts, Miles cannot establish he was prejudiced by counsel’s failure to object to the instruction.  Therefore, we affirm his convictions.
