Summary

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Scott County, Nancy S. Tabor and Mark J. Smith, Judges.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Vaitheswaran, P.J., Doyle, J., and Mahan, S.J.  Tabor, J., takes no part.  Opinion by Vaitheswaran, P.J.  (4 pages)

            Austin Keller appeals from his conviction for theft in the second degree, claiming the district court imposed “a greater sentence than agreed to in the plea agreement without giving [him] the opportunity to withdraw the plea.”  OPINION HOLDS: Having concluded Keller was not entitled to withdraw his plea, we further conclude his attorney was not ineffective in failing to object on this ground.  We affirm Keller’s judgment and sentence.
