            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Linn County, Nicholas L. Scott, District Associate Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Vaitheswaran, P.J., and Tabor and May, JJ.  Opinion by Tabor, J.  (5 pages)

            The defendant appeals his convictions for assault causing bodily injury, arguing photographs of the alleged injuries to a victim who did not testify violated the Confrontation Clause.  OPINION HOLDS: Because the photographs are not testimonial statements, there is no Confrontation Clause violation.  The district court did not err in overruling the objection.
