Court of Appeals Opinion

Opinion Number:
Date Published:
Nov 06, 2019

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Linn County, Patrick R. Grady, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Doyle, P.J., and Tabor and Schumacher, JJ.  Opinion by Doyle, P.J.  (3 pages)

            Alonzo Stokes appeals the district court order denying his application for postconviction relief from his first-degree-robbery conviction.  OPINION HOLDS: Because the jury’s verdict finding Stokes guilty of first-degree robbery while acquitting him of first-degree burglary was not inconsistent, Stokes has failed to show his trial counsel was ineffective by failing to object on this basis.
