Date Published:

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Scott County, Christine Dalton, District Associate Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Bower, C.J., and May and Ahlers, JJ.  Opinion by Bower, C.J.  (4 pages)

            Melissa Kittell challenges the sufficiency of the evidence for her conviction for third-degree theft, in violation of Iowa Code sections 714.1, 714.2(3) (2018).  In the alternative, Kittell asserts the court convicted her of the wrong level of theft.  OPINION HOLDS: Because substantial evidence supports the conviction and the district court did not err in entering conviction and sentence, we affirm.
