            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Linn County, Ian K. Thornhill, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Mullins, P.J., Schumacher, J., and Carr, S.J.  Opinion by Carr, S.J.  (10 pages)

            Randelle Brown appeals his convictions after a jury found him guilty of four charges.  OPINION HOLDS: The district court acted within its discretion in denying Brown’s motions for mistrial based on prosecutorial misconduct.  The court instructed the jury properly on the elements of first-degree harassment and did not err by refusing to give a “true threat” instruction.
