Torrey Love v. State of Maryland

Following a jury trial in the Circuit Court for Allegany County, Torrey Love, appellant, was convicted of second degree assault of a fellow inmate and possession of a weapon while incarcerated. The court sentenced appellant to ten years for the assault conviction, and it imposed a concurrent two-year sentence on the weapon conviction, with both sentences to be served consecutive to sentences imposed on unrelated offenses.

On appeal, appellant presents two questions for our review, which we have rephrased as follows:

1. Was the evidence sufficient to support appellant’s conviction for possession of a weapon by a person in confinement?

2. Is there ambiguity about which of appellant’s previously imposed sentences serve as the reference for appellant to begin the consecutive sentences imposed in this case?
