By continuing, you confirm that you understand and agree to these terms.

Actually for incarcerated Defendants, the Court normally waives the filing fees in appeals.

For a step by step appeal process in Iowa, see HERE. Needless to say that he would have to file while incarcerated, which actually is still possible.
