Case No. 21-0672

State of Iowa
v.
Royriguez Patterson

Royriguez Patterson appeals the pecuniary damages restitution order entered following his conviction for serious injury by vehicle. The restitution order was also entered in a companion simple misdemeanor case, which was dismissed pursuant to a plea agreement. Patterson argues the district court lacked authority to enter a restitution order for payment of the victim’s pecuniary damages in a dismissed case. Patterson further argues the restitution order lacks substantial evidentiary support.
