Summary

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Cerro Gordo County, DeDra Schroeder, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Tabor, P.J., and Greer and Badding, JJ.  Opinion by Badding, J. (3 pages)

            Bryan Holmes appeals his third-degree sexual-abuse convictions, claiming ineffective assistance of trial counsel.  OPINION HOLDS: Because Holmes appealed after the statutory amendment eliminating a defendant’s ability to pursue a claim of ineffective assistance on direct appeal took effect, we are without jurisdiction to consider the appeal.
