Court of Appeals Opinion

Opinion Number:
Date Published:
Aug 01, 2018

           Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Black Hawk County, Joel A. Dalrymple and Bradley J. Harris, Judges.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Vaitheswaran, P.J., and Doyle and Mullins, JJ.  Opinion by Doyle, J.  (6 pages)

           Eduardo Cano appeals after pleading guilty to assault with intent to commit serious injury, asserting a claim of ineffective assistance for counsel’s failure to advise him of certain immigration consequences of his plea.  OPINION HOLDS: Because we find the record on direct appeal inadequate to resolve Cano’s ineffective-assistance-of-counsel claim, we affirm his conviction, judgment, and sentence, and we preserve his claim for possible postconviction-relief proceedings to allow the record to be developed.
