CASE NO.: SC17-2029

Decided: February 02, 2018

The petition for writ of habeas corpus is hereby denied as procedurally barred. A petition for extraordinary relief is not a second appeal and cannot be used to litigate or relitigate issues that were or could have been raised on direct appeal or in prior postconviction proceedings. See Denson v. State, 775 So. 2d 288, 290 (Fla. 2000); Breedlove v. Singletary, 595 So. 2d 8, 10 (Fla. 1992). No motion for rehearing or reinstatement will be entertained by this Court.
