Court of Appeals Opinion

Opinion Number:
Date Published:
Mar 30, 2022

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Cerro Gordo County, Colleen Weiland, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Bower, C.J., and Vaitheswaran and Chicchelly, JJ.  Opinion by Chicchelly, J.  (6 pages)

            Benjamin Monson appeals his convictions for two counts of third-degree sexual abuse.  OPINION HOLDS: Because Monson has failed to demonstrate that any prejudice arising from joinder outweighed the State’s interest in judicial economy, we find no abuse of discretion in the district court’s refusal to sever his charges.
