Efren YERO, Appellant, v. The STATE of Florida, Appellee.

No. 3D16–891

Decided: March 29, 2017

Before FERNANDEZ, LOGUE, and SCALES, JJ. Carlos J. Martinez, Public Defender, and Jonathan Greenberg, Assistant Public Defender, for appellant. Pamela Jo Bondi, Attorney General, and Linda S. Katz, Assistant Attorney General, for appellee.

Efren Yero appeals the denial of his motion for post-conviction relief, arguing that his sentence of 155 years in prison, with parole, for his commission of a crime at the age of sixteen was the equivalent of a life sentence which must be vacated and entitled him to be resentenced pursuant to sections 775.082, 921.1401, and 921.1402, Florida Statutes. We agree. See Graham v. Florida, 560 U.S. 48 (2010), Henry v. State, 175 So.3d 675 (Fla. 2015), and Miller v. State, 2017 WL 362547 (Fla. 3d DCA Jan. 25, 2017);  Carter v. State, No. 3d16–1090 (Fla. 3d DCA March 15, 2017).

Reversed and remanded with directions.
