District Court of Appeal of Florida, Fifth District.

GUIES ULYSSES JOHNSON, Appellant, v. STATE OF FLORIDA, Appellee.

Case No. 5D17-322

Decided: May 26, 2017

Guies Ulysses Johnson, Jasper, pro se. Pamela Jo Bondi, Attorney General, Tallahassee, and Douglas T. Squire, Assistant Attorney General, Daytona Beach, for Appellee.

Guies Ulysses Johnson appeals the summary denial of his motion for postconviction relief and his amended motion for postconviction relief. We affirm, in part, and reverse, in part.

In his original motion for postconviction relief, Johnson raised six grounds, some of which included subparts. On April 11, 2016, the trial court entered an order summarily denying all of Johnson's claims, except “Ground 2E.” Johnson was afforded an opportunity to file an amended motion as to this ground. Because the trial court's order did not resolve all of Johnson's claims, it was a non-final, non-appealable order. See Fla. R. Crim. P. 3.850(f)(4).

On December 29, 2016, the trial court entered an order summarily denying Johnson's amended motion. Attached to the trial court's order was its original order of April 11, 2016, but not the attachments thereto. As a result, our record consists of the order (with attachments) denying Johnson's amended motion and the order (without attachments) summarily denying Johnson's original motion. Based on the limited record before us, we affirm the summary denial of “Grounds 1, 2A, 2C, 2E, 2F and 4.” However, we reverse and remand for record attachments that conclusively refute Johnson's claims, or an evidentiary hearing on “Grounds 2B, 2D, 2G, 3, 5, and 6.”

AFFIRMED, in part; REVERSED, in part; and REMANDED.

PER CURIAM.

COHEN, C.J., and ORFINGER and EVANDER, JJ., concur.
