            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Chickasaw County, Joel A. Dalrymple, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Doyle, P.J., Schumacher, J., and Gamble, S.J.  Opinion by Gamble, S.J.  (4 pages)

            Ricky Brandes appeals the summary dismissal of his third application for postconviction relief as untimely.  Brandes argues he has newly discovered evidence that allows him to bypass the statute of limitations found in Iowa Code section 822.3 (2018).  OPINION HOLDS: Brandes cannot bypass the statute of limitations because he provides no explanation as to why he could not present the evidence within the statute of limitations.
