Case No. 15-1408

Jacob Lee Schmidt
v.
State of Iowa

The court of appeals affirmed the district court’s summary dismissal of the applicant’s postconviction action. The applicant argues the court of appeals erred in holding newly discovered exculpatory evidence (in this case the victim’s recantation) cannot be the basis for postconviction relief when an applicant claiming actual innocence was convicted following a guilty plea rather than a trial.
