Date Published:
May 12, 2021

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Polk County, Heather L. Lauber, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Bower, C.J., and Tabor and Ahlers, JJ.  Opinion by Ahlers, J.  (8 pages)

            Salvador Solis Ortega appeals from his conviction for operating while intoxicated (OWI).  OPINION HOLDS: There is sufficient evidence to support the district court’s determination of Solis’s guilt under both “under the influence” and alcohol concentration theories of OWI.  Solis has failed to preserve error on any due process challenge, and he has failed to preserve error on and waived any self-incrimination challenges to his conviction.
