Case No. 15-1815

Martin Shane Moon
State of Iowa

Martin Shane Moon is seeking further review after the court of appeals affirmed the district court’s summary dismissal of his second application for postconviction relief based on the three-year statute of limitations. Moon argued that he recently received information from a person named Brandon Lee Boone, whose affidavit admitted he lied to police implicating Moon in the murder, and which justified the late filing of his PCR application. The court of appeals concluded that even if the alleged ground of fact could not have been raised earlier, the ground of fact lacks the necessary nexus with the conviction.
