Case No. 16-0894

State of Iowa
v.
Deshaun Marvin Lamar Williams

Deshaun Marvin Lamar Williams is seeking further review after the court of appeals affirmed his convictions for operating while intoxicated, third or subsequent offense, and driving while barred as a habitual offender. He argues there was insufficient evidence to support his conviction for driving while barred. He asserts his requested instruction that the State was required to prove the department of transportation mailed notice of the bar to him should have been given. The court of appeals concluded the State is not required to prove the department mailed notice of the bar in a prosecution for driving while barred as a habitual offender. The dissenting opinion opined that because the State did not make any effort to prove the department properly mailed notice to Williams that his license was barred, there is not sufficient evidence to sustain the conviction.
