Court of Appeals Opinion

Opinion Number:
Date Published:
Nov 03, 2021

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Polk County, Jeffrey Farrell, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Bower, C.J., and Vaitheswaran and Schumacher, JJ.  Opinion by Bower, C.J.  (4 pages)

            Donald Antonio Vaughn appeals the summary dismissal of his third application for postconviction relief (PCR).  OPINION HOLDS: Because Vaughn does not fit within the narrow exception to avoid the statutory three-year limitation period established in Allison v. State, 914 N.W.2d 866, 891 (Iowa 2018), we find no error in the dismissal of his untimely PCR application.
