Bill McCollum, Attorney General,
Tallahassee, and Ronald Napolitano,
Assistant Attorney General, Tampa,
Wardell Brown's motion to correct illegal sentence filed under Florida Rule
of Criminal Procedure 3.800(a) was denied by the circuit court. We affirm. Our
affirmance is without prejudice to Brown to raise, in a habeas petition filed in the circuit
court of the county in which he is currently incarcerated, see § 79.09, Fla. Stat. (2008);
see also Harvard v. Singletary, 733 So. 2d 1020 (Fla. 1999), the issue of whether the
credits granted in an earlier rule 3.800(a) proceeding require his immediate release.
