Summary

            Certiorari to the Iowa District Court for Grundy County, Linda M. Fangman, Judge.  WRIT SUSTAINED AND CASE REMANDED.  Considered by Greer, P.J., Badding, J., and Doyle, S.J.  Opinion by Doyle, S.J.  (7 pages)

            The question presented in this certiorari action is whether the district court abused its discretion in denying Christopher Buck’s application to modify a sex offender registration requirement.  OPINION HOLDS:  Because Buck is at low risk to reoffend and there is no substantial benefit to public safety in continuing his registration requirements, the district court abused its discretion in denying modification.  We sustain the writ of certiorari and remand to the district court for entry of an order granting Buck’s application.
