Court of Appeals Opinion

Opinion Number:
Date Published:
Nov 07, 2018

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Des Moines County, Mark E. Kruse, Judge.  CONVICTIONS AFFIRMED.  Considered by Danilson, C.J., and Vogel and Tabor, JJ.  Opinion by Tabor, J.  (21 pages)

            Timothy Chew was convicted of assault with intent to inflict serious injury and going armed with intent.  Chew appeals, arguing the district court improperly instructed the jury and unreasonably set his appeal bond at $750,000, cash only.  OPINION HOLDS: Finding no prejudice resulting from the jury instructions, we affirm Chew’s convictions.  But because the district court abused its discretion in functionally denying Chew bail, we vacate the appeal bond order.

Date Amended:
