MASON CITY — A Mason City man sentenced to life in prison on a sexual abuse charge has lost an appeal of his request for post-conviction relief. 65-year-old Warren Purvis was convicted by a Cerro Gordo County jury in 2013 of first-degree sexual abuse, a Class A felony with a mandatory life in prison term, as well as willful injury and domestic abuse by strangulation after a December 2012 attack on his ex-girlfriend at her home in the 600 block of South Pierce Avenue. Purvis had filed for post-conviction relief, stating that his trial counsel was ineffective. The Iowa Court of Appeals on Wednesday affirmed the district court’s decision denying post-conviction relief. The Court of Appeals says Purvis failed to prove that trial counsel did not perform an essential duty or that he suffered constitutional prejudice because counsel did not obtain the services of an expert and that counsel declined to strike a juror who knew the victim.
