Court of Appeals Opinion

Opinion Number:
21-1520
Date Published:
Nov 02, 2022
Summary

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Washington County, Daniel Kitchen, District Associate Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Bower, C.J., Tabor, J., and Danilson, S.J.  Opinion by Tabor, J.  (5 pages)

            Cory Brackin appeals his conviction for eluding in excess of twenty-five miles per hour over the speed limit.  He contends the State failed to offer substantial evidence that he drove faster than fifty miles per hour in a twenty-five-mile-per-hour zone after the pursuing officer turned on both his lights and siren.  OPINION HOLDS: Because the jury was entitled to believe the officer’s testimony that he could gauge Brackin’s speed, we affirm its verdict.
