IN THE DISTRICT COURT OF APPEAL OF THE STATE OF FLORIDA FIFTH DISTRICT JANUARY TERM 2005
MELVIN JOHNSON, Appellant, v. STATE OF FLORIDA, Appellee. ________________________________/ Opinion filed April 29, 2005 Appeal from the Circuit Court for Orange County, Thomas B. Smith, Judge. James S. Purdy, Public Defender, and Rose M. Levering, Assistant Public Defender, Daytona Beach, for Appellant. Charles J. Crist, Jr., Attorney General, Tallahassee, and Bonnie Jean Parrish, Assistant Attorney General, Daytona Beach, for Appellee. Case No. 5D04-724
PER CURIAM. Melvin Johnson appeals his convictions for four counts of robbery with a firearm. Johnson was sentenced to concurrent terms of life in prison with a ten-year minimum mandatory for counts one and two, and concurrent terms of life with a ten-year minimum mandatory for the other two counts, consecutive to counts one and two. On appeal, Johnson contends that the trial court erred by imposing two of the ten-year minimum
mandatory sentences consecutively.
Johnson argues that the ten-year minimum
mandatory terms should run concurrently because the crimes occurred during a single criminal episode. We agree and remand for resentencing in accordance with this
opinion. See Perreault v. State , 853 So. 2d 604 (Fla. 5th DCA 2003). Because this corrected sentence has no impact on the term of Johnson’s incarceration, he need not be present at resentencing. Convictions AFFIRMED, sentences REMANDED for correction.
