AFFIRMED.

Per Curiam.

[¶1] Derek Lynn Foreid appealed from a district court order summarily dismissing his second petition for post-conviction relief. In 2007, Foreid was convicted of gross sexual imposition, and this Court affirmed the conviction. State v. Foreid, 2009 ND 41, 763 N.W.2d 475. Foreid subsequently filed a petition for post-conviction relief, which the district court summarily dismissed. This Court affirmed the dismissal on appeal. Foreid v. State, 2011 ND 16, 798 N.W.2d 878.

[¶2] On appeal, Foreid argues the district court clearly erred in denying his petition for post-conviction relief because the jury instruction on the definition of force within the charge of gross sexual imposition was inadequate. The State argues Foreid's argument is barred by misuse of process because it was not raised in his previous petition for post-conviction relief. Foreid did not raise this issue in the proceeding leading to his conviction, in the direct appeal of his conviction, or in his first petition for post-conviction relief. We summarily affirm under N.D.R.App.P. 35.1(a)(6) and (7). See Heyen v. State, 2001 ND 126, ¶¶ 7, 11, 630 N.W.2d 56 (holding a claim for post-conviction relief was barred by misuse of process when petitioner inexcusably failed to raise the issue in a direct appeal or in the initial petition for post-conviction relief); Syvertson v. State, 2000 ND 185, ¶ 18, 620 N.W.2d 362 (explaining a misuse of process occurs if a defendant inexcusably fails to: (1) raise an issue in a proceeding leading to a judgment of conviction; (2) pursue an issue on appeal that was raised and litigated in the original district court proceedings; or (3) raise an issue in an initial petition for post-conviction relief).
