Court of Appeals Opinion

Opinion Number:
Date Published:
Apr 01, 2020

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Scott County, John Telleen, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Vaitheswaran, P.J., and Mullins and Ahlers, JJ.  Opinion by Mullins, J.  (11 pages)

            Larry Wiggins Jr. appeals his conviction of possession of marijuana with intent to deliver.  He argues his attorney was ineffective in failing to challenge the sufficiency of the evidence supporting his conviction and failing to request a jury instruction concerning accommodation with a special interrogatory concerning quantity.  He also argues the court erred in denying his motion for mistrial during jury selection.  OPINION HOLDS: Having found no abuse of discretion in the court’s denial of Wiggins’s mistrial motion and counsel was not ineffective as alleged, we affirm Wiggins’s conviction.
