    Summary of this case from State v. Miller

No. 67276.

May 8, 1986. Rehearing Denied June 24, 1986.

Application for Review of the Decision of the District of Appeal — Direct Conflict of Decisions. Fourth District — Case No. 84-2188.

Jim Smith, Atty. Gen. and Joy B. Shearer, Asst. Atty. Gen., West Palm Beach, for petitioner.

Richard L. Jorandby, Public Defender, and Anthony Calvello and Gary Caldwell, Asst. Public Defenders, 15th Judicial Circuit, West Palm Beach, for respondent.


In Miller v. State, 468 So.2d 1018 (Fla. 4th DCA 1985), the court vacated Miller's sentence because he was sentenced pursuant to the guidelines in effect at the time of sentencing as opposed to the guidelines in effect at the time the crime was committed. In State v. Jackson, 478 So.2d 1054 (Fla. 1985), we held that the trial court may sentence a defendant pursuant to the guidelines in effect at the time of sentencing.

Accordingly, the decision of the district court is quashed.

It is so ordered.
