BRYAN MATTHEW PIPER v. STATE OF MARYLAND

Following a trial in the Circuit Court for Washington County, a jury convicted appellant, Bryan Matthew Piper, of two counts of second-degree assault. Appellant presents a single question for our consideration, which we quote:
Was the evidence sufficient to support a jury finding of guilt beyond a
reasonable doubt when the only evidence on which the jury was basing its
verdict as to one count of assault was the testimony of a seven year old boy
with Autism, ADHA [sic], and sensory issues who provided inconsistent
testimony concerning the timing of these events and where the evidence on
which the jury was basing its verdict as to the other count the only confirming
evidence was the testimony of the child’s mother who had acknowledged her
substantial animus towards Appellant?
