Carl D. BOND, Appellant,

Appeal from the Circuit Court for Orange County, José R. Rodriguez, Judge.
Carl D. Bond, South Bay, pro se.
Pamela Jo Bondi, Attorney General, Tallahassee, and Anthony J. Golden, Assistant Attorney General, Daytona Beach, for Appellee.
Carl Bond challenges by habeas petition his conviction for lewd and lascivious act in the presence of a child, a conviction that was obtained twenty years ago. He claims that the arresting officer, assistant state attorney, and trial judge did not comply with the filing of an oath of office as required by
section 876.05, Florida Statutes (1991). Bond suggests there was no authority to arrest, charge, prosecute, try or sentence him.
We explained the proper procedure required to raise such a claim in Johnson v. Office of the State Attorney, 987 So.2d 206 (Fla. 5th DCA 2008).
