Case No. 19-1721

Ron Fortune
State of Iowa

Ron Fortune appeals from the district court’s denial of his application for modification of sex-offender registration requirements pursuant to Iowa Code section 692A.128. He argues he met the statutory qualifications and was considered a low-risk for reoffending, after satisfying such qualifications there should be a presumption favoring modification, and the court abused its discretion by considering factors unrelated to the statutory purpose of protection of the community and his risk to reoffend.
