Summary

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Pocahontas County, Kurt J. Stoebe, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Doyle, P.J., and Mullins and May, JJ.  Opinion by Doyle, P.J.  (7 pages)

            Matthew Chindlund appeals his convictions following his guilty pleas to assault while displaying a dangerous weapon and criminal mischief in the third degree.  Chindlund argues his pleas were not voluntary and intelligently provided given his mental incapacity.  OPINION HOLDS: Having failed to establish he was incompetent at the time of his pleas or make a showing that a reasonable person would believe that there is a substantial question of his competency, we affirm Chindlund’s convictions and sentences.
