Summary

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Marshall County, Kim M. Riley, District Associate Judge. AFFIRMED.  Considered by Vaitheswaran, P.J., and Tabor and May, JJ.  Opinion by Tabor, J.  (5 pages)

            Michael Proffitt appeals his sentences for two counts of felony stalking.  He argues that the district court should have granted him probation.  OPINION HOLDS: Given Proffitt’s criminal history and the pervasive nature of his acts, the court exercised proper discretion by imposing incarceration rather than probation.  We affirm.
