            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Clinton County, Mark Fowler, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Vaitheswaran, P.J., and Tabor and Ahlers, JJ.  Opinion by Tabor, J.  (4 pages)

            Jeffery Shockey appeals his prison sentence following his guilty plea to credit card fraud as a habitual offender.  He argues the district court should have granted him probation as recommended by the presentence investigation report.  OPINION HOLDS: The district court relied on appropriate factors in rejecting Shockey’s request for probation—including his prior felony offenses, lack of remorse, mature age, and prospects for succeeding on probation.  We affirm the sentence.
