Criminal Law: Sentencing-Authority to Resentence

Where defendant challenged a trial court’s decision to set aside its original judgment sentencing him on robbery and assault convictions, the trial court lacked the authority to set aside the original judgment and resentence him, so the case is remanded to the court with directions to vacate.
