Summary

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Scott County, Mark J. Smith, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Danilson, C.J., and Vogel and Tabor, JJ.  Opinion by Tabor, J.  (12 pages)

            Kenith Lewis, through appellate counsel, presents several claims of ineffective assistance of counsel and additionally raises pro se claims concerning trial counsel’s failure to object to testimony, the sufficiency of the evidence, the constitutionality of his sentence, and jury selection.  OPINION HOLDS: Lewis fails to show trial counsel’s performance fell below professional standards.  Finding no other ground for reversal, we affirm Lewis’s convictions and sentences for first-degree burglary and third-degree sexual abuse.
