PAUL WILLIAM SCOTT Petitioner(s) v. JULIE L. JONES, ETC. Respondent(s)
Petitioner, Paul William Scott, a prisoner under a sentence of death, has filed a petition for writ of habeas corpus contending that he is entitled to relief pursuant to McCloud v. State, 208 So. 3d 668 (Fla. 2016) (plurality opinion). Having considered the petition, the response, and the reply, we hereby deny the petition. See Jeffries v. State, 222 So. 3d 538, 547 (Fla. 2017) (plurality opinion) (noting that the Court has “historically refused to review the relative culpability of codefendants when a codefendant pleads guilty and receives a lesser sentence as a result”).
