District Court of Appeal of Florida,
Fourth District.
April 22, 1992.

Appeal from the Circuit Court for Broward County; Robert W. Tyson, Jr., Judge.

Robert A. Butterworth, Atty. Gen., Tallahassee, and Michelle A. Smith, Asst. Atty. Gen., West Palm Beach, for appellant.

Hilliard Moldof of Whitelock & Moldof, Fort Lauderdale, for appellee.


The trial court erred by sentencing the defendant to less than the mandatory minimum sentence required for a sale of cocaine within 1,000 feet of a school. We reverse and remand for a resentencing to the mandatory minimum sentence. State v. Ratliff, 592 So.2d 315 (Fla. 4th DCA 1992); State v. Vola, 591 So.2d 248 (Fla. 4th DCA 1991); State v. Lane, 582 So.2d 77 (Fla. 4th DCA 1991). See also State v. Scates, 585 So.2d 385 (Fla. 4th DCA 1991).

LETTS, GUNTHER and STONE, JJ., concur.
