Summary

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Polk County, Karen Romano, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Bower, C.J., and Vaitheswaran and Schumacher, JJ.  Opinion by Schumacher, J.  (7 pages)

            Brett Jones appeals the denial of his postconviction relief application.  He contends a recent Supreme Court decision, United States v. Haymond, 139 S.Ct. 2369, 2382 (2019), renders the revocation unconstitutional.  OPINION HOLDS: Because of the significant differences between the statute in Haymond and the one in this case, we find Haymond inapplicable.  Accordingly, we affirm.
