Case No. 4D02-2320.

Opinion filed October 22, 2003. Order Granting Certification January 4, 2004.

Appeal from the Circuit Court for the Fifteenth Judicial Circuit, Palm Beach County; John J. Hoy, Judge; L.T. Case No. 97CF007872A02.

Carey Haughwout, Public Defender, and Alan T. Lipson, Assistant Public Defender, West Palm Beach, for appellant.

Charles J. Crist, Jr., Attorney General, Tallahassee, and Sue-Ellen Kenny, Assistant Attorney General, West Palm Beach, for appellee.


The defendant appeals an order that rejected his argument that section 775.21(6), Fla. Stat. (2001), "The Florida Sexual Predators Act," is unconstitutional and declared him to be a sexual predator. He argues that the trial court erred in its declaration because the statute fails to afford him procedural due process and impermissibly intrudes on his privacy interests. This court has recently resolved those issues contrary to the defendant's position. See Reyes v. State, No. 4D02-1897 (Fla. 4th DCA Sept. 10, 2003). We therefore affirm.

WARNER, MAY, JJ., and ARAMONY, SUSAN, Assoc. Judge, concur.
