Summary

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Monona County, Roger L. Sailer, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Bower, C.J., Greer, J., and Vogel, S.J.  Opinion by Vogel, S.J.  (9 pages)

            William Goodon appeals from his conviction for possession of methamphetamine, third or subsequent offense.  He argues the district court erred in admitting evidence a syringe and needle field-tested positive for methamphetamine and in admitting several out-of-court statements over his hearsay objections.  OPINION HOLDS: Any error in the admission of the field test results was harmless, and the out-of-court statements were either excepted from hearsay or substantially the same as other evidence in the record.
