Date Published:

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Black Hawk County, Linda M. Fangman, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Doyle, P.J., and Tabor and Greer, JJ.  Opinion by Tabor, J.  (3 pages)

            Cassandra Greenway appeals her conviction for theft in the second degree, raising two points of ineffective assistance of counsel.  OPINION HOLDS: Under a recent statutory amendment to Iowa Code section 814.7 (Supp. 2019), we lack authority to decide Greenway’s ineffective‑assistance-of-counsel claims on direct appeal.  Thus we affirm.  Greenway may still raise her claims in a postconviction-relief proceeding.
