Case No. 17-1838

State of Iowa
Jonathan Shane Weston

Jonathan Weston seeks further review after the court of appeals affirmed his conviction and sentence for domestic abuse assault causing bodily injury. Weston contends the district court: (1) failed to substantially comply with his right of allocution at sentencing, (2) erred in ordering him to pay court costs and attorney fees without first determining his reasonable ability to pay, and (3) entered an illegal sentence in taxing all court costs in the action to Weston when two of the counts were dismissed prior to trial.
