Case No. 19-0939

State of Iowa
v.
Charles Edward Ross

Defendant appeals from the judgment of conviction and sentence entered on his plea of guilty to possession of a tool with intent to use it in the unlawful removal of a theft detection device. See Iowa Code § 714.7B(3) (2019). Defendant contends a padlock and steel cable do not constitute a “theft detection device” under the statute and his trial counsel was ineffective in allowing him to plead guilty to an offense for which there was no factual basis.
