Richard Larry Hornberger, appellant, was convicted at a bench trial in the Circuit Court for Baltimore County of stalking and two counts of harassment (by course of conduct and by following). The court sentenced appellant on the stalking conviction to five years of imprisonment, all but 18 months suspended, and two years of probation upon his release from prison; the court merged his harassment convictions.

Appellant raises two questions on appeal:

I. Was the evidence sufficient to sustain appellant’s convictions for: A) stalking, and B) harassment?

II. Did the trial court err when it failed to state on the record that appellant’s waiver of his right to a jury trial was knowing and voluntary as required under Md. Rule 4-246(b)?
