Court of Appeals Opinion

Opinion Number:
Date Published:
Jan 27, 2022

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Guthrie County, Richard B. Clogg, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Bower, C.J., and Greer and Badding, JJ.  Opinion by Greer, J.  (10 pages)

            Christopher Jenkins appeals from his conviction of operating while intoxicated (OWI), claiming the record lacks substantial evidence to support the jury’s verdict and that the law enforcement officers should not have been allowed to offer “expert” testimony about the ignition system of the van he was operating.  OPINION HOLDS: Substantial evidence supports the OWI conviction.  Because no objection was made at trial to the ignition-system evidence, error was not preserved.
