Court of Appeals Opinion

Opinion Number:
Date Published:
Jun 30, 2021

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Black Hawk County, Linda M. Fangman, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Doyle, P.J., Schumacher, J., and Scott, S.J.  Opinion by Scott, S.J.  (8 pages)

            Samantha Wilson appeals the sentences imposed, following guilty pleas, upon her convictions of intimidation with a dangerous weapon and going armed with intent.  She argues the court abused its sentencing discretion by employing a fixed sentencing policy, relying only on the nature of the offenses, and relying on unproven facts and uncharged conduct.  She also argues implicit racial bias had an impact on the sentences imposed.  OPINION HOLDS: Finding no cause for reversal on the issues presented for our review, we affirm the sentences imposed.
