            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Scott County, Mark R. Lawson, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Schumacher, P.J., Ahlers, JJ., and Danilson, S.J.* Opinion by Schumacher, P.J.  (7 pages)

            A convicted sex offender appeals the district court’s denial of his sex offender registration requirements, contending there was an abuse of discretion.  The offender argues the district court abused its discretion in denying his modification request.  OPINION HOLDS: Though categorized as a low risk, the court viewed Evans as a present public safety risk to children, a decision that we do not view as clearly untenable or clearly unreasonable.  Finding that the district court did not abuse its discretion, we affirm.
