Case No. 20-0202

State of Iowa
Ryan Joseph Hahn

Ryan Joseph Hahn appeals his conviction following a jury trial for possession of marijuana with intent to deliver, a class D felony, in violation of Iowa Code section 124.401(1)(d); failure to affix a drug tax stamp, a class D felony, in violation of Iowa Code section 453B.12, and possession of a controlled substance (second offense), an aggravated misdemeanor, in violation of Iowa Code section 124.401(5). Hahn argues: (1) the district court erred in denying his motion to suppress because the trash survey was conducted in violation of his right against unreasonable searches and seizures under the Fourth and Fourteenth Amendments to the United State Constitution and article I, section 8 of the Iowa Constitution; and (2) if the constitutional issues raised are waived or otherwise not preserved for appeal, trial counsel was ineffective.
