RECENT RELEASES - FLORIDA SUPREME COURT
CRIMINAL LAW--SENTENCING--CORRECTION--CREDIT FOR TIME SERVED--OVERREPORTING. A judge's sua sponte amendment of sentencing documents to correct an overreporting of jail credit, made after the defendant's sentences were affirmed on appeal, was untimely. The Court held that while a trial court has the inherent authority to sua sponte correct sentencing documents that overreport the amount of jail time served by a defendant prior to sentencing or the amount of jail time and prison time served by a defendant prior to resentencing, that authority is subject to the procedural constraints of rule 3.800(b).
FAMILY LAW RULES OF PROCEDURE--AMENDMENT. The Court adopted amendments to Rule 12.351 (Production of Documents and Things Without Deposition). "In subdivision (b) (Procedure), if service is by e-mail, the minimum time between service of a notice of intent to serve a subpoena and service of the subpoena is changed from fifteen to ten days." Subdivision (b) was further amended "to clarify when an objection to production is due, and facsimile is added as a permissible form of service."
