            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Hardin County, James A. McGlynn and Amy M. Moore, Judges.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Tabor, P.J., and May and Greer, JJ.  Opinion by Tabor, P.J.  (6 pages)

            A defendant appeals his conviction and sentence for the aggravated misdemeanor offense of sexual exploitation by a school employee.  He contends the plea was not knowing and intelligent.  He also argues the court abused its discretion in denying his request for a deferred judgment.  OPINION HOLDS: Because the defendant received an appropriate advisory on how to challenge his plea, but did not do so, his first claim will have to wait until he seeks postconviction relief.  Finding no abuse of discretion in his sentencing, we affirm.
