Court of Appeals Opinion

Opinion Number:
Date Published:
Feb 08, 2023

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Dubuque County, Monica Zrinyi Ackley, Judge.  SENTENCES VACATED AND REMANDED FOR RESENTENCING.  Considered by Vaitheswaran, P.J., Ahlers, J., and Gamble, S.J.*  Opinion by Ahlers, J. (5 pages)

            Peter Triervieler appeals from his sentences following his guilty pleas to child endangerment, domestic abuse assault, and operating while intoxicated.  OPINION HOLDS: The district court incorrectly believed it could not suspend the sentences for Triervieler’s two felony convictions, so we conclude the court abused its discretion at sentencing and remand for resentencing before a different judge.
