Summary

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Clarke County, Dustria A. Relph, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Bower, C.J., and Tabor and Ahlers, JJ.  Opinion by Bower, C.J.  (4 pages)

            Derek Eugene Robbins appeals his convictions for three offenses, challenging the imposition of consecutive sentences and asserting trial counsel failed to provide effective assistance by not filing a motion to suppress evidence.  OPINION HOLDS: We find no abuse of discretion in sentencing, and Iowa Code section 814.7 (Supp. 2019) precludes our consideration of Robbins’s ineffective-assistance-of-counsel claim.  We affirm.
