April 4, 2018

STATE OF IOWA, Plaintiff-Appellee,
v.
ANTAVIEON JACKSON, Defendant-Appellant.

          Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Black Hawk County, Kellyann M. Lekar, Judge.

         A defendant appeals his convictions for willful injury causing serious injury and domestic abuse assault.

          Mark C. Smith, State Appellate Defender, and Robert P. Ranschau, Assistant Appellate Defender, for appellant.

          Thomas J. Miller, Attorney General, and Bridget A. Chambers, Assistant Attorney General, for appellee.

          Considered by Vogel, P.J., and Potterfield and Mullins, JJ.

          POTTERFIELD, Judge.

         Antavieon Jackson appeals his convictions for willful injury causing serious injury, in violation of Iowa Code section 708.4(1) (2015), and domestic abuse assault causing bodily injury, in violation of section 708.2A(2)(b). On appeal, Jackson argues there was insufficient evidence to support his convictions.

         I. Background Facts and Proceedings.

         Jackson and the complaining witness met on Facebook in July 2015 and began a romantic relationship. Jackson was twenty-six; the complaining witness turned eighteen in December 2015.

She was treated for a lacerated spleen and liver, broken ribs, a broken eye socket, and a broken nose. Photographs taken at the hospital show her with two black eyes and extensive bruising on her body.

         When the complaining witness returned home, she testified Jackson resumed assaulting her within an hour. She was hospitalized a second time on May 16 when she began having seizures. The complaining witness testified Jackson called her at the hospital, accused her of infidelity, and said he would beat her again when she returned home.

         After that call, the complaining witness told hospital staff Jackson had assaulted her. She asked to speak with the police, and when she was released from the hospital, she reported the incident to the Waterloo Police Department.

         In June 2016, the State charged Jackson with willful injury causing serious injury and domestic abuse assault. Jackson was ...
