            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Des Moines County, John M. Wright, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by May, P.J., and Schumacher and Badding, JJ.  Opinion by Schumacher, J.  (17 pages)

            Stone Graham appeals his convictions for assault on a peace officer with a firearm and assault with intent to inflict serious injury.  He contends the court violated his right against double jeopardy when it sentenced him to consecutive sentences on the two convictions.  He also claims evidence was admitted that was not relevant and unduly prejudicial.  OPINION HOLDS: We find the offenses do not merge.  Further, the district court did not abuse its discretion when admitting evidence.  We affirm.
