Date Published:

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Polk County, Sarah Crane, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Bower, C.J., and Doyle and Mullins, JJ.  Opinion by Doyle, J.  (6 pages)

            Lance Dixon appeals the summary disposition of his fifth application for postconviction relief (PCR).  He claims his application is not time-barred.  OPINION HOLDS: Because Dixon’s fifth PCR application was time-barred under section 822.3 (2018) and does not fall within the narrow Allison v. State, 914 N.W.2d 866, 891 (Iowa 2018) exception, the PCR court properly granted summary disposition dismissing the application.
