Court of Appeals Opinion

Opinion Number:
Date Published:
Sep 13, 2023

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Polk County, Sarah Crane, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Greer, P.J., and Schumacher and Badding, JJ.  Opinion by Greer, P.J.  (7 pages)

            The appellant appeals the district court’s dismissal of his application for judicial review and affirmation of the Iowa Board of Parole’s denial of his parole.  OPINION HOLDS: Because the parole board’s decision to deny Yancey parole was not unreasonable, arbitrary, capricious, or an abuse of its discretion and Yancey’s separation-of-powers claim was not properly preserved for our review, we affirm the decision of the district court.
