241 So. 3d 277

Patrick MAXWELL, Appellant,
STATE of Florida, Appellee.

Case No. 5D17-3805

District Court of Appeal of Florida, Fifth District.

Opinion filed April 27, 2018

Patrick Maxwell, Cross City, pro se.

Pamela Jo Bondi, Attorney General, Tallahassee, and Douglas T. Squire, Assistant Attorney General, Daytona Beach, for Appellee.


Patrick Maxwell appeals the postconviction court's order granting in part and denying in part his Florida Rule of Criminal Procedure 3.800(a) motion to correct illegal sentence. The court granted Maxwell, a juvenile nonhomicide offender, a judicial review hearing of his lengthy prison sentence under sections 775.082, 921.1401, and 921.1402, Florida Statutes (2017), but denied his separate request for a resentencing hearing.

Based upon our recent precedent, we agree with Maxwell that he is entitled to a resentencing hearing pursuant to section 921.1402. See Katwaroo v. State , 237 So.3d 446 (Fla. 5th DCA 2018) (holding that it was error for the trial court to amend the juvenile offender's sentence to provide for a review hearing without first conducting a resentencing hearing (citing Davis v. State , 230 So.3d 487, 488 (Fla. 5th DCA 2017) ) ). Therefore, we reverse and remand *278with directions that the court conduct a full resentencing hearing. We affirm the other issue raised in Maxwell's motion without further discussion.

AFFIRMED in part; REVERSED in part; and REMANDED.
