            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Washington County, Shawn Showers, Judge.  APPEAL DISMISSED.  Considered by Tabor, P.J., and Greer and Badding, JJ.  Opinion by Badding, J.  (4 pages)

            William McCarroll appeals his judgment and sentence following his written guilty plea to felony eluding and operating while intoxicated, first offense.  He raises several ineffective‑assistance-of-counsel claims in challenging his guilty plea and sentence.  OPINION HOLDS: Because we lack authority to decide McCarroll’s claims under Iowa Code sections 814.6 and 814.7 (2020), we must dismiss his appeal.
