Court of Appeals Opinion

Opinion Number:
Date Published:
Sep 23, 2020

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Linn County, Ian K. Thornhill, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Vaitheswaran, P.J., and Tabor and Schumacher, JJ.  Opinion by Schumacher, J.  (7 pages)

            After entering a guilty plea, Taylor received a deferred judgment.  The court revoked the previously granted deferred judgment, imposed sentence, and suspended the term of incarceration.  Taylor appeals, contesting his sentence and arguing the trial court failed to consider certain mitigating factors in revoking his deferred judgment.  OPINION HOLDS. We find the trial court sufficiently demonstrated its consideration and exercise of discretion when it revoked Taylor’s deferred judgment.
