Court of Appeals Opinion

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Warren County, Brad McCall, Judge.  AFFIRMED AS MODIFIED AND REMANDED.  Considered by Bower, C.J., and Tabor and Ahlers, JJ.  Opinion by Ahlers, J.  (7 pages)

            Anthony Ferre appeals the district court’s ruling on his postconviction-relief application.  OPINION HOLDS: Because there was no factual basis for five of the twenty charges to which Ferre pleaded guilty, the proper remedy is to vacate all convictions arising from the plea deal—not just the five without a factual basis—set aside the guilty pleas on all charges, and remand the case to the district court where the State may proceed as if there were never a plea agreement.
