            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Cerro Gordo County, Gregg R. Rosenbladt, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Bower, C.J., and Greer and Badding, JJ.  Opinion by Greer, J.  (6 pages)

            Nathaniel Pearce pled guilty to two counts of sexual abuse in the second degree and was later sentenced to two consecutive twenty-five-year terms of imprisonment.  Pearce argues the district court did not provide adequate reasons to explain why it imposed consecutive sentences and the court placed too much weight on the nature of the offenses in deciding the appropriate sentences.  OPINION HOLDS: We find no abuse of discretion and affirm.
