Attorney General, for appellee.
Considered by Vogel, P.J., Doyle, J., and Goodhue, S.J.
Goodwin appeals his conviction following his guilty plea to
driving while barred as a habitual offender, in violation of
Iowa Code sections 321.560 and 321.561 (2016). Goodwin claims
his plea was not knowing and voluntary because he was not
fully advised about the consequences of his plea.
Background Facts and Proceedings
February 26, 2016, the State charged Goodwin with operating a
motor vehicle while barred as a habitual offender. On May 13,
2016, Goodwin agreed to plead guilty; in exchange, the State
agreed to recommend a sentence of ninety days of work
release. The written plea of guilty signed by Goodwin
disclosed the maximum prison sentence and the maximum and
minimum fine Goodwin faced, but it did not disclose the
applicable criminal surcharge on the fine. On July 27, the
district court entered and sentenced Goodwin to one year in
jail with all but ninety days suspended. The court suspended
the applicable fine and surcharge.
