Opinion Number:
Date Published:
Dec 21, 2022

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Des Moines County, Mark Kruse, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Greer, P.J., Ahlers, J., and Gamble, S.J.  Opinion by Gamble, S.J.  (9 pages)

            Timothy Pross appeals his convictions for first-degree arson and second-degree burglary.  He challenges the sufficiency of the evidence and the district court’s decision to not redact references to “new charges” made during a jailhouse phone call.  OPINION HOLDS: Pross’s convictions are supported by substantial evidence.  When heard in context, the references to “new charges” clearly referenced the charges in the present case.  The district court did not abuse its discretion in admitting the phone call recording without redaction.
