Mr. Johnson was sentenced to 48 years in prison for the armed kidnapping, robbery and sexual battery of three women. The First District Court of Appeal rejected his appeal. Mr. Johnson next challenged his sentences in trial court, which ruled that two of his sentences exceeded the state maximum. He was resentenced to 40 years on each count and then filed a new challenge against his new sentences. The trial court denied it but the 1st DCA overturned the trial court. This Court granted review to resolve a conflict in the district courts.
