Summary

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Henry County, Lucy J. Gamon, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Vogel, P.J., and Vaitheswaran and McDonald, JJ.  Opinion by McDonald, J.  (4 pages)

            Jason Kensett appeals the dismissal of his application for postconviction relief.  OPINION HOLDS:  Because Kensett cannot demonstrate his trial counsel’s alleged conflict of interest had an adverse effect on counsel’s performance, he is not entitled to relief.  The district court did not err in dismissing Kensett’s application for postconviction relief.
