Court of Appeals Opinion

Opinion Number:
Date Published:
Jun 03, 2020

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Dubuque County, Robert J. Richter, District Associate Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Tabor, P.J., and May and Greer, JJ.  Opinion by Greer, J. (8 pages)

            Joshua Begle challenges the sentence imposed following his guilty plea.  Begle claims his case should be remanded for resentencing because the court improperly considered his parole eligibility, abused its discretion by imposing a consecutive rather than concurrent sentence, and did not state sufficient reasons for the sentence on the record.  OPINION HOLDS: We find all of Begle’s claims without merit and affirm his sentence.
