            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Des Moines County, John M. Wright, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Bower, C.J., and Vaitheswaran and Greer, JJ.  Opinion by Greer, J.  (5 pages)

            Davon Mozie appeals the denial of his application for postconviction relief (PCR).  He claims his right to be free from cruel and unusual punishment was infringed because he was subject to mandatory minimum sentencing for a crime he committed at the age of nineteen.  OPINION HOLDS: As we have done many times before, we decline to extend the prohibition of mandatory minimum sentences of imprisonment to adult offenders.  We affirm the denial of Mozie’s PCR application.
