Jamarcus D. LUCAS, a/k/a Jamarcus Demiah Lucas, Appellant, v. STATE of Florida, Appellee.

Case No. 2D17–345

Decided: February 21, 2018

Rachael E. Bushey, Tampa, for Appellant. Pamela Jo Bondi, Attorney General, Tallahassee, and Jonathan P. Hurley, Assistant Attorney General, Tampa, for Appellee.

Jamarcus D. Lucas appeals his conviction for aggravated battery causing great bodily harm and his fifteen-year sentence as a prison releasee reoffender (PRR). We affirm Lucas's conviction without discussion. However, this court's decision in Lewars v. State, 42 Fla. L. Weekly D1098 (Fla. 2d DCA May 12, 2017), review granted, No. SC17–1002, 2017 WL 4022360 (Fla. Sept. 13, 2017), requires us to reverse his PRR sentence. As we did in Lewars, we certify conflict with State v. Wright, 180 So. 3d 1043 (Fla. 1st DCA 2015), Louzon v. State, 78 So. 3d 678 (Fla. 5th DCA 2012), and Taylor v. State, 114 So. 3d 355 (Fla. 4th DCA 2013).

Affirmed in part; reversed in part; remanded; conflict certified.

KELLY, Judge.
