Sanchez-Torres v. StateAnnotate this Case
The Supreme Court affirmed the order of the circuit court summarily denying Appellant's successive postconviction motion filed under Fla. R. Crim. P. 3.851, holding that Appellant was not entitled to relief on his allegations of error.
Appellant was convicted of armed robbery and first-degree murder and was sentenced to death. The Supreme Court affirmed. Appellant later filed the successive motion at issue here seeking vacatur of his death sentence based on allegedly newly-discovered evidence. The trial court concluded that the motion was untimely and then ruled on the merits that the claims did not warrant relief. The Supreme Court affirmed, holding that the circuit court committed no error in summarily denying Appellant's claims.
