Criminal Law: Post-Conviction Motion – Pros Se Motion – Timeliness

Where a defendant filed a pro se motion to vacate or correct his judgment or sentence under Rule 29.15, the motion was not filed within 90 days of the mandate, so the judgment denying the motion on the merits is vacated and the motion is dismissed because it was not timely filed.

Judgment vacated; remanded.
