Court of Appeals Opinion

Opinion Number:
Date Published:
Oct 20, 2021

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Polk County, Brendan E. Greiner and Cynthia M. Moisan, District Associate Judges.  AFFIRMED.  Heard by Vaitheswaran, P.J., and Tabor and May, JJ.  Opinion by Vaitheswaran, P.J.  (5 pages)

            Lauren Schulte appeals her guilty pleas and sentence following convictions for two operating-while-intoxicated offenses, claiming she has good cause to appeal her guilty plea, the plea was unknowing and involuntary, and the court’s acceptance of the guilty plea was plain error.  She also argues the sentencing court abused its discretion in sentencing her to prison and ordering the terms be served consecutively.  OPINION HOLDS: We affirm Schulte’s convictions, judgment and sentence.
