Case No. 16-0851

State of Iowa
v.
Noah Riley Crooks

Noah Crooks appeals from his conviction for second-degree murder in violation of Iowa Code section 707.3 (2011). Crooks contends Iowa Code section 232.45(7)(a) does not provide statutory authority to try a thirteen year old as a youthful offender. Even if the Code authorizes such a prosecution, he contends the youthful offender statutes violate article I, section 17 of the Iowa Constitution. Crooks further argues the sentencing court abused its discretion in failing to consider all sentencing options, in failing to consider the Miller factors on the record, and in imposing incarceration.
