            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Boone County, Amy M. Moore and Christopher Polking, Judges.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Doyle, P.J., and Mullins and Greer, JJ.  Opinion by Greer, J.  (9 pages)

            George Cue plead guilty to four counts of sexual abuse in the second degree.  On appeal, Cue argues he was incompetent to plead guilty, and that the lower court violated due process by failing to hold a competency hearing sua sponte.  OPINIONS HOLDS: We find that Cue was competent to plead guilty and that due process was satisfied regarding his plea.  There was no probable cause established to require a competency hearing.  Thus, we affirm his convictions on four counts of sexual abuse in the second degree.
