            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Mills County, Craig Dreismeier, Judge.  SENTENCE VACATED IN PART AND REMANDED WITH DIRECTION.  Considered by Bower, C.J., and Greer and Badding, JJ.  Opinion by Bower, C.J. (7 pages)

            Zachary Liddick challenged the mandatory minimum sentence imposed, arguing the district court did not properly apply the factors applicable to juvenile offenders.  He also asserts the imposed fine is an illegal sentence.  OPINION HOLDS: We discern no abuse of discretion in the court’s imposition of a mandatory minimum sentence.  However, there is no statutory authority supporting the fine, and we therefore vacate that portion of the sentence and remand for a corrected sentencing order.
