            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Polk County, Samantha Gronewald, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Tabor, P.J., Schumacher, J., and Potterfield, S.J.  Opinion by Potterfield, S.J.  (7 pages)

            Matthew Fisher appeals the denial of his application for postconviction relief (PCR).  OPINION HOLDS: After granting Fisher a delayed appeal, we conclude he waived his claim of ineffective assistance of trial counsel and failed to prove his claim of actual innocence.  We affirm the district court’s denial of his PCR application.
