Summary

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Warren County, Richard B. Clogg, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Vaitheswaran, P.J., and Mullins and Ahlers, JJ.  Opinion by Vaitheswaran, P.J.  (8 pages)

            Kenneth Doss appeals from the district court’s denial of his application for postconviction relief, contending (1) his plea attorney was ineffective in failing to “adequately inform [him] of the extent of the rules and requirements of the special sentence at the time of his plea” and (2) the district court “erred in holding the rules of [his] special sentence and parole are constitutional and legal as applied to him.”  OPINION HOLDS: We affirm the denial of Doss’s postconviction-relief application.
