Date Published:

Summary

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Henry County, Mark E. Kruse, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Doyle, P.J., and Tabor and Ahlers, JJ.  Opinion by Tabor, J.  (13 pages)

            Alex Spiker appeals his conviction for sexual abuse in the third degree.  He claims he should have been granted a mistrial or new trial based on the prosecution’s late disclosure of exculpatory evidence.  He also contends the district court erred in denying his motion for continuance based on newly discovered evidence.  OPINION HOLDS: Because Spiker failed to preserve error on the first issue and waived error on the second issue, we uphold the district orders denying his motions and affirm his conviction.
