Court of Appeals Opinion

Opinion Number:
Date Published:
Sep 22, 2021

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Scott County, Henry W. Latham II, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Mullins, P.J., and May and Ahlers, JJ.  Opinion by Mullins, J. (8 pages)

            Marco Carrillo appeals his convictions of two counts of sexual abuse in the second degree.  OPINION HOLDS: We have no authority to consider Carrillo’s ineffective-assistance claims.  The evidence presented at trial was sufficient to convince a rational jury of Carrillo’s guilt.  There is nothing clearly untenable or unreasonable with the district court’s evidentiary determinations leading to the admission of the video interview, and we find no abuse of discretion.
