Court of Appeals Opinion

Date Published:

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Black Hawk County, David P. Odekirk, Judge.  REVERSED AND REMANDED.  Considered by Potterfield, P.J., and Tabor and Bower, JJ.  Opinion by Tabor, J.  (13 pages)

            Derek Krieger appeals his convictions for third-degree burglary and two counts of criminal trespass.  OPINION HOLDS: Because we find the State failed to prove the Wildwood Road apartment complex was not open to the public, we reverse Krieger’s burglary conviction.  And because the State did not prove Krieger entered the Joan Drive and West Ninth Street apartment complexes without permission, we likewise reverse Krieger’s criminal trespass convictions.
