The appellant's attorney in the above referenced case filed a supplemental brief on January 11, 1988. After reviewing the brief, it appears that the issue appellant raised is not ripe for review on direct appeal. Given that appellant's counsel has reached the same conclusion (See Supp. Brief of App. at 5) the State does not intend to file a supplemental response unless this Court desires additional input from the State. Please accept this letter as a formal response in lieu of a brief on the State's behalf.
