Summary

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Black Hawk County, Joel Dalrymple, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Tabor, P.J., and Mullins and May, JJ.  Opinion by Mullins, J.  (6 pages)

            Bradley Williams appeals his civil commitment as a sexually violent predator under Iowa Code chapter 229A (2016).  He argues the court erred in concluding he was “a person presently confined” for a sexually violent offense within the meaning of Iowa Code section 229A.4(1) and the evidence was insufficient to support a conclusion he is a “sexually violent predator” as defined in section 229A.2(12).  OPINION HOLDS: We find substantial evidence supports the district court’s conclusions and affirm the district court order civilly committing Williams as a sexually violent predator.
