Court of Appeals Opinion

Opinion Number:
Date Published:
Feb 21, 2024

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Pottawattamie County, Eric J. Nelson, District Associate, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Greer, P.J., and Schumacher and Ahlers, JJ.  Opinion by Ahlers, J.  (6 pages)

            T.M. challenges his delinquency adjudication on the grounds that the juvenile court erred in admitting certain testimony from his father and that insufficient evidence supported the finding that he committed a delinquent act.  OPINION HOLDS: We decline to consider the evidentiary challenge, choosing to conduct our de novo review for the sufficiency of the evidence without considering the challenged evidence.  Following that de novo review, we find sufficient evidence supports the delinquency adjudication.
