Lawrence v. StateAnnotate this Case
The Supreme Court affirmed the decision of the postconviction court summarily denying Defendant's second successive motion for postconviction relief filed under Fla. R. Crim. P. 3.851, holding that Defendant was not entitled to relief.
In 1995, Defendant was convicted of first-degree murder, conspiracy to commit murder, auto theft, and petty theft. Defendant was sentenced to death for the murder. In 1998, the death sentence became final. In 2018, Defendant filed a second successive postconviction motion claiming that he was intellectually disabled. The Supreme Court affirmed the postconviction court's summary denial of Defendant's intellectual disability claim, holding that Defendant's argument lacked merit.
