District Court of Appeal of Florida, Third DistrictNov 5, 2008
994 So. 2d 1180 (Fla. Dist. Ct. App. 2008)

No. 3D08-1510.

November 5, 2008.

An Appeal under Florida Rule of Appellate Procedure 9.141(b)(2) from the Circuit Court for Miami-Dade County, John Schlesinger, Judge.

Veronica Tubbins, in proper person.

Bill McCollum, Attorney General, for appellee.

Before WELLS, SHEPHERD, and ROTHENBERG, JJ.


This is an appeal of an order summarily denying a motion under Florida Rule of Criminal Procedure 3.850. On appeal from a summary denial, this Court must reverse unless the postconviction record shows conclusively that the appellant is entitled to no relief. See Fla.R.App.P. 9.141(b)(2)(D).

Because the record now before us fails to make the required showing, we reverse the order and remand for an evidentiary hearing or other appropriate relief. If the trial court again enters an order summarily denying the postconviction motion, the court shall attach record excerpts conclusively showing that the appellant is not entitled to any relief.

Reversed and remanded for further proceedings.
