TEONO SMITH, APPLICANT-APPELLANT,
STATE OF IOWA, RESPONDENT-APPELLEE.
Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Polk County, Karen A. Romano, Judge.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Doyle, P.J.
Teono Smith appeals from the district court's denial of his application for post-conviction relief. AFFIRMED.
Considered by Doyle, P.J., and Mullins and Bower, JJ.
Teono Smith appeals from the district court's denial of his application for post-conviction relief following his 2008 plea of guilty to possession with intent to deliver-cocaine base "crack" (a class "B" felony). Smith contends his trial counsel was ineffective in failing to "fully investigate" his case and "obtain necessary information" prior to entry of his guilty plea. Smith further argues the district court erred in failing to find his probation was "unlawfully revoked" in 2010, following several reports of Smith's violations of probation and an evidentiary hearing.
We have carefully reviewed the record, the briefs of the parties, and the district court's well-reasoned opinion, which addressed both issues Smith now raises on appeal. Upon our de novo review, we find any further discussion of these issues by our court would add little to and not change the disposition of this case. We affirm the district court's order denying Smith's application for post-conviction relief. See Iowa R. App. P. 6.1203(a), (d).
