            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Carroll County, Gary L. McMinimee, Judge.  AFFIRMED IN PART, VACATED IN PART, AND REMANDED.  Considered by Tabor, P.J., Greer, J., and Potterfield, S.J.  Opinion by Greer, J.  (6 pages)

            Robert Morris appeals the restitution order entered after his guilty plea, arguing there was insufficient evidence to support the restitution award for one of the victim’s damages.  OPINION HOLDS: We conclude there was sufficient evidence to support the restitution award for the victim’s damaged clothing and carpet and lost wages, and affirm that portion of the order.  We agree there was insufficient evidence of the victim’s medical expenses and vacate that portion of the order.  We remand for further proceedings to determine the amount of restitution for the victim’s medical bills.
