Case Style:

Tyler Sherman vs State of Florida

Case Number: 13-4464

Judge: PER CURIAM

Court: FIRST DISTRICT COURT OF APPEAL STATE OF FLORIDA

Plaintiff's Attorney: Ashley Moody, Attorney General, and Angela R. Hensel, Assistant Attorney General

Defendant's Attorney: Ethan Andrew Way

Description:






We twice earlier affirmed Appellant’s separate convictions for solicitation (in violation of section 847.0135(3)(a), Florida Statutes), and traveling to meet a minor after solicitation (in violation of section 847.0135(4)(a)). See Sherman v. State, 160 So. 3d 494 (Fla. 1st DCA 2015); Sherman v. State, 247 So. 3d 663 (Fla. 1st DCA 2015). The Florida Supreme Court has now quashed our more recent decision, remanding for reconsideration in light of Lee v. State, 258 So. 3d 1297 (Fla. 2018). See Sherman v. State, No. SC18-949 (Fla. Apr. 16, 2019). In Lee, the court held that “to determine whether multiple convictions of solicitation of a minor, unlawful use of a two-way communications device, and traveling after solicitation of a minor are based upon the same conduct for purposes of double jeopardy, the reviewing court should consider only the charging document.” 258 So. 3d at 1299.

Outcome: Applying that rule here, we must reverse the lesser conviction. On remand, the trial court should resentence for the remaining conviction. We otherwise affirm.
