            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Black Hawk County, Brook Jacobsen, District Associate Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Mullins, P.J., and May and Schumacher, JJ.  Opinion by Schumacher, J.  (10 pages)

            Defendant appeals his convictions for operating while intoxicated and driving while revoked, arguing the district court erred in admitting certain evidence over his hearsay and Confrontation Clause objections and that the evidence is insufficient to support the guilty verdict.  OPINION HOLDS: The evidence was properly admitted under an exception to the hearsay rule and was not a violation of the Confrontation Clause as the statements were nontestimonial.  The record contains substantial evidence and is sufficient to support the defendant’s convictions.
