Court of Appeals Opinion

Opinion Number:
Date Published:
Aug 01, 2018

           Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Polk County, Michael D. Huppert, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Danilson, C.J., and Vogel and Tabor, JJ.  Opinion by Tabor, J.  (5 pages)

      Ryan Stockbauer appeals his convictions for operating while intoxicated and possession of methamphetamine.  Stockbauer argues his trial counsel was ineffective in failing to object to alleged prosecutorial error or misconduct during voir dire, opening statement, presentation of evidence, and closing argument.  OPINION HOLDS: Because the record is inadequate to assess the merits of the ineffective-assistance claims, we uphold the conviction but preserve the ineffective-assistance claims for possible postconviction-relief proceedings.
