Summary

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Story County, Steven P. Van Marel, District Associate Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Bower, C.J., and Doyle and Schumacher, JJ.  Opinion by Bower, C.J.  (4 pages)

            The issue in this case is whether the district court abused its discretion by suspending Snipes’s sentence and placing him on probation without explicitly articulating the factors it considered in doing so.  OPINION HOLDS: The district court’s decision was based on reasonable considerations, and we find no abuse of discretion.
