Summary

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Black Hawk County, George L. Stigler, Judge.  REVERSED AND REMANDED FOR RESENTENCING.  Considered by Potterfield, P.J., and Tabor and Bower, JJ.  Opinion by Tabor, J.  (9 pages)

            K’von Henderson appeals his second-degree robbery sentence, arguing he was entitled to the benefit of an ameliorative sentencing amendment because his conviction occurred after July 1, 2016, the application date set out in the statute.  OPINION HOLDS: Because we agree Henderson was not convicted of second-degree robbery until the supreme court set aside his first-degree robbery conviction and remanded to the district court for resentencing and entry of judgment on second-degree robbery, we reverse and remand for resentencing.
