On May 29, 2014, Mr. Davis was detained and questioned by law enforcement for several hours and then released without arrest. Over a year later, Mr. Davis was formally arrested for multiple robbery-related offenses. Before trial, Mr. Davis filed motions to dismiss the charges, arguing the State of Florida violated Florida’s speedy trial rule because more than 175 days had passed since his alleged arrest on May 29, 2014. The trial court denied the motion ruling he had not been arrested that day under the definition of arrest outlined in case law. Mr. Davis was convicted of all offenses and received a forty-year sentence. Mr. Davis appealed to the Fifth District Court of Appeal, which agreed with the ruling of the trial court. The Fifth DCA also certified a question of great public importance for this Court’s review.
