This matter arises out of a carjacking and armed robbery in Baltimore City. Appellant Ignatius Harcum, a.k.a. Nathaniel Shivers, was tried and convicted in the Circuit Court for Baltimore City for armed robbery, carjacking, and use of a handgun in a crime of violence. The circuit court imposed sentences of imprisonment totaling seventy years, with parole available after fifteen years.
Appellant now appeals his convictions and presents the following questions for our review, which we have reordered and rephrased as follows:
I. Whether the circuit court erred where it denied appellant’s motion for a speedy trial under the Sixth Amendment of the United States Constitution;
II. Whether the circuit court erred where it denied appellant’s motion to be tried within 180 days pursuant to MD. CODE ANN., CRIM. PROC. § 6-103 and Maryland Rule 4-271.
