ORDER AND OPINION

††††††††††† (J. Demers)

††††††††††† THIS MATTER is before the Court on the defendant, Roy Gaberís, appeal from a judgment and sentence entered by the Pinellas County Court. The discrepancy between the offense date alleged in the charging document and the date proved at trial is insufficient to justify granting a motion for judgment of acquittal under the circumstances of this case. See Sanchez v. State, 956 So.2d 1261 ( Fla. 4th DCA 2007). The trial court was correct to deny the defendantís motion for judgment of acquittal.

††††††††††† IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED that this Court affirms the judgment and sentence.

††††††††††† DONE AND ORDERED in Clearwater, Pinellas County, Florida this _____ day of April, 2008.
