Case No. 18-0184

State of Iowa
v.
Bernard Anthony Smith

Bernard Smith challenges his conviction and sentence for burglary in the second degree as a habitual offender in violation of Iowa Code sections 713.5 and 902.8. He argues the district court erred (1) in taking his plea as a habitual offender, (2) by imposing a requirement to pay court-appointed attorney’s fees without specifying the amount of the fees or determining his reasonable ability to pay, and (3) by improperly imposing a fine.
