Date Published:

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Woodbury County, Duane E. Hoffmeyer, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Tabor, P.J., and May and Greer, JJ.  Opinion by Greer, J.  (11 pages)

            Johnson appeals the denial of his application for postconviction-relief, arguing that trial counsel provided ineffective assistance in failing to obtain cell phone records, failing to depose witness Gonzalez, and failing to obtain testimony from witnesses he claims could’ve assisted at trial.  OPINION HOLDS: We find that trial counsel’s performance was sufficient, and no prejudice resulted from trial counsel’s performance.  Thus, we affirm the district court’s denial of Johnson’s application for postconviction relief.
