Court of Appeals Opinion

Opinion Number:
Date Published:
Oct 24, 2018

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Delaware County, Bradley J. Harris, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Potterfield, P.J., and Bower and McDonald, JJ.  Opinion by McDonald, J.  (6 pages)

            Jamie Cole appeals the denial of his motion for postconviction relief.  OPINION HOLDS: Cole’s claim that his plea counsel was ineffective is barred because Cole failed to raise that claim until this appeal. Cole’s postconviction-relief counsel was not ineffective because Cole elected to represent himself pro se. The district court substantially complied with Iowa Code section 822.7 (2015) when ruling on Cole’s application for postconviction relief.
