Summary

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Wapello County, Crystal S. Cronk, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by May, P.J., Greer, J., and Doyle, S.J.  Opinion by Doyle, S.J.  (6 pages)

            Anthony Gomez appeals the imposition of consecutive sentences on his convictions of third-degree sex abuse and willful injury causing bodily injury after a remand for resentencing.  OPINION HOLDS: The district court exercised its discretion properly by weighing the nature of the offenses more heavily than mitigating measures Gomez took afterward.  Because Gomez failed to challenge the adequacy of an addendum to the presentence investigation report, the district court properly considered it.  And there is no need to vacate and remand for resentencing when Gomez provided the district court with the information he complains was missing.
