HELEN C. RIVERA v. STATE OF MARYLAND

Appellant, Helen C. Rivera (“Rivera”), was indicted in connection with an incident that occurred as she was driving on Beach Drive in Bethesda, Maryland on June 3, 2013. Rivera’s trial was presented to a jury on February 3 and February 4, 2014. The jury found Rivera guilty of: (1) two counts of second degree assault; and (2) one count of failing to remain at the scene of an accident involving bodily injury. At sentencing, however, Rivera was placed on probation before judgment with respect to the two counts of second degree assault. Rivera was convicted of one count of failing to remain at the scene of an accident involving bodily injury.

Rivera filed a timely appeal and presents two issues for our review, which we have rephrased as follows:

1. Whether the trial court erred in not striking the initial venire and empaneling a new group of prospective jurors.

2. Whether the trial court erred in ordering Rivera not to operate a motor vehicle during her period of probation.
