            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Polk County, Celene Gogerty, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Ahlers, P.J., and Badding and Chicchelly, JJ.  Opinion by Ahlers, P.J.  (6 pages)

            Devon Webster appeals following his guilty plea to four misdemeanor counts.  He contends his plea was involuntary because the court failed to inform him of the 15% surcharge imposed on the fine for each count and the district court committed sentencing error in the manner in which it imposed the surcharges.  OPINION HOLDS: Webster failed to establish good cause to challenge his guilty plea, so his conviction is affirmed.  The district court properly imposed the 15% surcharge on all charges and properly suspended those surcharges in their entirety when it suspended all fines.
