District Court of Appeal of Florida,First District.

James BUTLER, Appellant, v. STATE of Florida, Appellee.

No. 1D05-5002.

Decided: December 30, 2005

Appellant, pro se. Charlie Crist, Attorney General, Tallahassee, for Appellee.

Having considered the appellant's response to this Court's order, dated November 2, 2005, we dismiss this appeal for lack of jurisdiction.   The notice of appeal filed on August 8, 2005, appealing the order on the appellant's postconviction motion signed on June 15, 2005, is untimely.   Because the notice of appeal was filed more than 30 days after rendition of the order, this Court is without appellate jurisdiction.   See Fla. R.App. P. 9.110(b);  Harrelson v. State, 903 So.2d 267 (Fla. 1st DCA 2005)(citing Proctor v. State, 845 So.2d 1007 (Fla. 5th DCA 2003)).   This dismissal is without prejudice to appellant's right to file a petition for belated appeal.   Harrelson, 903 So.2d at 267.



BARFIELD, DAVIS and WOLF, JJ., concur.
