Dettle was convicted of traveling after solicitation of a minor, solicitation of a minor, and unlawful use of a communications device. He appealed his convictions arguing that the multiple convictions for the same conduct violated double jeopardy. The First District Court of Appeal affirmed his conviction in part and vacated in part. Dettle filed a post-conviction motion with the trial court, arguing that he is entitled to retroactive relief based on a subsequent decision by this Court. The trial court and the First DCA denied Dettle’s motion, ruling that he is not entitled to retroactive relief, and this appeal followed. The First DCA also certified a question of great public importance to this Court.
