            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Black Hawk County, Andrea J. Dryer, Judge.  REVERSED AND REMANDED WITH INSTRUCTIONS.  Considered by Ahlers, P.J., and Badding and Chicchelly, JJ.  Opinion by Badding, J.  (10 pages)

            Larry Twigg appeals the denial of his application to modify sex-offender-registry requirements under Iowa Code section 692A.128 (2020).  OPINION HOLDS: We conclude the district court erred in determining that Twigg did not meet the threshold statutory requirements to modify his sex-offender-registry obligations.  Because those requirements were met, but we cannot determine whether the court exercised its discretion in the second step of the modification process, we remand this matter to the court.
