Court of Appeals Opinion

Opinion Number:
Date Published:
Nov 17, 2022

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Black Hawk County, Bradley J. Harris, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Bower, C.J., Ahlers, JJ., and Scott, S.J.  Opinion by Ahlers, J.  (4 pages)

            Donshey Reed appeals the dismissal of his application for postconviction relief (PCR).  OPINION HOLDS: This PCR application is untimely.  Even assuming the relation-back doctrine applies here, this PCR application was not filed promptly after the conclusion of the first PCR action.  Reed’s equitable-tolling and constitutional arguments are not preserved for our review.
