Reeves v. State

Florida Court of Appeal, Fourth District

November 23, 2011

Jean E. REEVES, Appellant,
v.
STATE of Florida, Appellee.

Rehearing Denied June 5, 2012.

Appeal of order denying rule 3.800 motion from the Circuit Court for the Fifteenth Judicial Circuit, Palm Beach County; Stephen Rapp, Judge; L.T. Case No.1992CF005295AXX.

Jean E. Reeves, Ocala, pro se.

No appearance required for appellee.

PER CURIAM.

Jean E. Reeves (Defendant) appeals an order summarily denying her rule 3.800(a) motion to correct illegal sentence. We affirm.

First, a challenge to the voluntariness of the plea is not cognizable in a rule 3.800(a) motion. Second, a habitual felony offender sentence may be imposed, consecutive to a guidelines sentence, without violating Hale. [1] Gipson v.

State, 661 So.2d 346, 349 (Fla. 3d DCA 1995) (vacating habitual sentences for life felonies, which did not then qualify for habitual sentencing, and directing trial court on remand to impose guidelines sentences for them, which properly could be imposed consecutively to the remaining two concurrent habitual sentences).

As Defendant repeatedly has raised these same or similar grounds, all which have been denied, and the denials affirmed on appeal, we warn her that filing frivolous actions or appeals may result in sanctions, State v. Spencer, 751 So.2d 47 (Fla.1999), and/or referral to prison officials for consideration of disciplinary procedures which may include loss of gain time. § 944.279(1), Fla. Stat. (2011); § 944.28(2)(a), Fla. Stat. (2011).

Affirmed; Appellant cautioned against frivolous ...
