Court of Appeals Opinion

Opinion Number:
Date Published:
Aug 04, 2021

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Scott County, Tamra Roberts, Judge.  APPEAL DISMISSED.  Considered by Doyle, P.J., and Tabor and Greer, JJ.  Opinion by Tabor, J.  (5 pages)

            David Galvin appeals his conviction following a guilty plea to possession of methamphetamine with intent to deliver.  He asserts the colloquy was defective because the court failed to conduct an inquiry into the terms of the plea agreement.  OPINION HOLDS: Because Galvin did not move in arrest of judgment and does not contend the court failed to advise him of the necessity for filing that motion, he has not established good cause to appeal the plea proceedings.
