Court of Appeals Opinion

Opinion Number:
Date Published:
Mar 06, 2024

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Polk County, David M. Porter, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Tabor, P.J., and Badding and Chicchelly, JJ.  Opinion by Chicchelly, J.  (5 pages)

            Muzammil Ali appeals the denial of his application for postconviction relief.  OPINION HOLDS: The postconviction court properly applied the law when it found counsel did not breach any duty by failing to inform Ali of a collateral consequence of pleading guilty.  Because Ali has not shown his trial counsel provided ineffective assistance, we affirm the denial of postconviction relief.
