Anthony Chavis, Appellant, v. The State of Florida, Appellee.

No. 3D15–2294

Decided: January 25, 2017

Before ROTHENBERG, LAGOA, and LOGUE, JJ. Carlos J. Martinez, Public Defender, and Stephen J. Weinbaum, Assistant Public Defender, for appellant. Pamela Jo Bondi, Attorney General, and Jeffrey R. Geldens, Assistant Attorney General, for appellee.

Affirmed. See Lynch v. State, 293 So. 2d 44, 45 (Fla. 1974) (“A defendant, in moving for a judgment of acquittal, admits not only the facts stated in the evidence adduced, but also admits every conclusion favorable to the adverse party that a jury might fairly and reasonably infer from the evidence. The courts should not grant a motion for judgment of acquittal unless the evidence is such that no view which the jury may lawfully take of it favorable to the opposite party can be sustained under the law.”).

LOGUE, J.
