Date Published:
Jun 03, 2020

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Story County, Angela L. Doyle, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Vaitheswaran, P.J., and Doyle and May, JJ.  Opinion by Doyle, J.  (4 pages)

            Roman Moncivaiz appeals the denial of his application for postconviction relief.  OPINION HOLDS: We agree that Moncivaiz failed to show his trial or appellate counsel were ineffective in representing him.  Nor can he show he was prejudiced by the cumulative effect of any errors.  And we cannot resolve his new claim that postconviction counsel was ineffective on the record before us on appeal.
