            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Dallas County, Randy V. Hefner, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by May, P.J., and Schumacher and Badding, JJ.  Opinion by Badding, J.  (4 pages)

            Stephen Wink appeals the consecutive sentences imposed following his guilty pleas, arguing the district court violated his federal and state due process rights by sentencing him without the use of a presentence investigation report.  OPINION HOLDS: Although Wink could not waive the creation of a presentence investigation report, long-standing case law allowed him to waive its use for sentencing purposes.  We affirm the sentences imposed by the district court.
