State v. Goodwin

Court of Appeals of Iowa

August 2, 2017

STATE OF IOWA, Plaintiff-Appellee,
v.
LOREN ANTON GOODWIN, Defendant-Appellant.

         Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Boone County, Paul G. Crawford, District Associate Judge.

         A defendant appeals his guilty plea. REVERSED AND REMANDED.

          Andrew J. Boettger of Hastings, Gartin & Boettger, L.L.P., Ames, for appellant.

          Thomas J. Miller, Attorney General, and Sharon K. Hall, Assistant Attorney General, for appellee.

          Considered by Vogel, P.J., Doyle, J., and Goodhue, S.J. [*]

          VOGEL, Presiding Judge.

         Loren 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.

         I. Background Facts and Proceedings

         On 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.[1] 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.

         Goodwin appeals.
