Date Published:

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Black Hawk County, Bradley J. Harris, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Bower, C.J., and May and Ahlers, JJ.  Opinion by May, J.  (7 pages)

            Marcus Gamblin appeals the dismissal of his application for postconviction relief.  OPINION HOLDS: Gamblin claims he was entitled to relief because (1) trial counsel elicited testimony about the mandatory minimum sentence for first-degree robbery; and (2) there was a typographical error in the jury instructions.  We disagree.  The district court was right to dismiss Gamblin’s PCR application.
