            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Louisa County, Mark E. Kruse, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Bower, C.J., and May and Ahlers, JJ.  Opinion by Ahlers, J.  (7 pages)

            Trequan Cosgrove appeals the district court order denying his motion to dismiss the criminal charges against him on speedy trial grounds.  Cosgrove argues the State failed to bring him to trial in violation of his speedy trial rights under Iowa Rule of Criminal Procedure 2.33.  OPINION HOLDS: The district court did not abuse its discretion by denying Cosgrove’s motion to dismiss because Cosgrove waived his rights to a speedy trial, as evidenced by defense counsel’s active participation in choosing the date of trial.  We affirm.
