Court of Appeals Opinion

Opinion Number:
Date Published:
May 24, 2023

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Polk County, Joseph Seidlin, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Tabor, P.J., Greer, J., and Scott, S.J.  Opinion by Tabor, P.J.  (7 pages)

            Kelly Sand appeals the denial of his application for postconviction relief.  He contends plea counsel was ineffective for not informing him of the “silent mandatory sentence” for the completion of sex offender treatment while in custody of the Iowa Department of Corrections.  OPINION HOLDS: Finding parole eligibility is not a direct consequence of Sand’s guilty pleas, we reject the claim and affirm the denial of relief.
