Summary

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Story County, Bethany Currie, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Mullins, P.J., May, J., and Vogel, S.J.  Opinion by Mullins, P.J. (3 pages)

            Devontez Voigts appeals the district court’s denial of his challenge to the racial composition of the jury pool in his criminal trial.  OPINION HOLDS: Voigts has failed to causally link the racial underrepresentation of his jury pool to a jury-management practice, so we affirm the district court’s rejection of his fair-cross-section challenge.
