ORDER AND OPINION
THIS MATTER is before the Court on the petitioner, Berc Sarafian’s, Petition for Writ of Certiorari. After reviewing the briefs and record, this Court denies the Petition.
Petitioner is attempting to seek certiorari review of a non-final order which
denied his motion in limine. “An interlocutory pretrial order in a criminal
case excluding evidence is subject to certiorari review only when the order
departs from the essential requirements of the law and plenary appeal cannot
provide an adequate remedy.” State v. Veilleux, 859 So.2d 1224, 1227 (
IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED that the Petition for Writ of Certiorari is denied.
AND ORDERED in Chambers at
