            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Scott County, Nancy S. Tabor and John D. Telleen, Judges.  AFFIRMED.  Heard by Vogel, P.J., and Vaitheswaran and McDonald, JJ.  Tabor, J., takes no part.  Opinion by Vaitheswaran, J.  (9 pages)

            Isaiah Henderson appeals his convictions for two counts of delivery of crack cocaine and one count of interference with official acts inflicting bodily injury, raising claims relating to the restoration of competency following a finding of incompetency and his speedy trial rights.  OPINION HOLDS: We conclude Henderson’s guilty plea amounted to a waiver of his right to raise challenges relating to the delay in competency-restoration treatment.  We conclude counsel did not breach an essential duty in waiving Henderson’s ninety-day speedy trial rights and Henderson’s one-year speedy trial right was not violated.  We affirm Henderson’s judgment and sentence.
