Court of Appeals Opinion

Opinion Number:
Date Published:
Jul 21, 2021

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Greene County, Gina Badding, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Mullins, P.J., and May, J. and Potterfield, S.J.  Opinion by Mullins, P.J.  (5 pages)

            Tyson Ruth appeals the denial of his application for postconviction relief (PCR).  He argues the district court erred in denying his claims that his criminal counsel was ineffective in (1) allowing him to enter a plea that was coerced and not voluntary and (2) not filing a motion to suppress on the basis he was denied his constitutional right to a neutral and detached magistrate issuing search warrants.  OPINION HOLDS: We affirm the denial of Ruth’s PCR application.
