Summary

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Warren County, Brendan Greiner, District Associate Judge.  SENTENCE VACATED IN PART AND REMANDED FOR DETERMINATION OF RESTITUTION.  Considered by Bower, C.J., and Greer and Ahlers, JJ.  Opinion by Greer, J. (7 pages)

            Vadim Shultsev appeals the sentence imposed after he pled guilty to the charge of operating a motor vehicle while barred, in violation of Iowa Code sections 321.560 and 321.561 (2018).  Shultsev argues the court failed to state adequate reasons for the sentence imposed on the record.  He also challenges the restitution ordered by the district court at sentencing.  OPINION HOLDS: Because we find no abuse of discretion by the district court with the sentencing term, we affirm the sentencing decision.  We vacate the restitution order and remand for further proceedings to determine Shultsev’s reasonable ability to pay.
