Court of Appeals Opinion

Opinion Number:
Date Published:
Dec 16, 2020

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Story County, Steven P. Van Marel, District Associate Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Tabor, P.J., Greer, J., and Vogel, S.J.  Opinion by Vogel, S.J.  (2 pages)

            Mandell Clark appeals from his guilty plea.  He asserts his counsel was ineffective by failing to exclude a witness’s testimony from the minutes of evidence after the witness did not comply with the deposition subpoena.  OPINION HOLDS: Clark does not assert his plea was either involuntarily or unknowingly entered.  Therefore, his claim on appeal is waived, and we affirm his conviction and sentence.
