Court of Appeals Opinion

Opinion Number:
Date Published:
Sep 01, 2021

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Scott County, Christine Dalton, District Associate Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Mullins, P.J., and May and Ahlers, JJ.  Opinion by Ahlers, J. (6 pages)

            Anthony Willis Soteco challenges the sufficiency of the evidence supporting his conviction for domestic abuse assault.  OPINION HOLDS: Testimony from the complaining witness and other disinterested parties provides substantial evidence to support finding that Soteco had the specific intent to engage in assaultive conduct.  As this is the only issue Soteco raises on appeal, we affirm the district court’s finding of guilt and the corresponding adjudication and sentence.
