            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Dallas County, Thomas P. Murphy, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Vaitheswaran, P.J., and Mullins and Ahlers, JJ.  Opinion by Vaitheswaran, P.J.  (3 pages)

            Jason Charlet appeals his plea of guilty to eluding and operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated, third offense, contending that (1) his plea was not knowing and intelligent and (2) his attorney was ineffective in “fail[ing] to fully discuss the consequences of a plea and available defenses.”  OPINION HOLDS: Because Charlet’s guilty plea was knowing, voluntary, and intelligent, and because counsel did not breach an essential duty in conferring with Charlet about the plea, we affirm.
