           Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Black Hawk County, Andrea J. Dryer, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Danilson, C.J., McDonald, J., and Mahan, S.J.  Opinion by Danilson, C.J.  Special concurrence by McDonald, J. (6 pages)

           Daniel Haywood entered a guilty plea to three of five counts of forgery and the remaining two counts were dismissed.  He challenges as illegal the sentence imposing court costs related to the dismissed charges.  OPINION HOLDS: The plea agreement specifically provided for Haywood to pay restitution for the dismissed counts and restitution includes payment of court costs.  Finding no legal error, we affirm.  SPECIAL CONCURRENCE ASSERTS: I concur in the conclusion the defendant failed to prove he was assessed any costs not attributable to his convictions.
