JONES v. STATE

Timothy JONES, Appellant, v. STATE of Florida, Appellee.

No. 1D15–3244

Decided: May 18, 2018

Andy Thomas, Public Defender, and Glen P. Gifford, Assistant Public Defender, Tallahassee, for Appellant. Pamela Jo Bondi, Attorney General, and Trisha Meggs Pate, Assistant Attorney General, Tallahassee, for Appellee.

Timothy Jones appeals his convictions for possession of cocaine and paraphernalia. We reject his argument that the trial court erred in denying a motion to suppress. However, because Jones was found incompetent to proceed a year and a half before his trial, and the record does not contain a subsequent order finding him competent, we reverse and remand for further proceedings consistent with this Court's opinion in Cotton v. State, 177 So.3d 666, 668–69 (Fla. 1st DCA 2015).

Reversed and Remanded.

Per Curiam.

Ray, Makar, and Winsor, JJ., concur.
