Summary

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Scott County, Mark D. Cleve and Henry W. Latham II, Judges.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Doyle, P.J., Mullins, J., and Blane, S.J.  Opinion by Mullins, J. (11 pages)

            Darreon Draine appeals his conviction of willful injury causing serious injury.  He claims the district court should have ordered a competency evaluation and abused its discretion in denying his motion in arrest of judgment.  OPINION HOLDS: Draine failed to establish probable cause of his incompetency to warrant a competency evaluation.  The district court did not abuse its discretion in denying Draine’s motion in arrest of judgment because the plea proceeding showed Draine entered his plea knowingly and intelligently.  We affirm Draine’s conviction.
