CHARLES LEE GASTIGER, JR. v. STATE OF MARYLAND

After a trial held on October 8, 2013, a jury sitting in the Circuit Court for Worcester County convicted Charles Lee Gastiger, appellant, of theft of property having a value of over $1,000. See Md. Code Ann. Crim. Law Art. § 7-104. On this same date, the circuit court sentenced appellant to one year in jail, suspending all but 90 days with two years’ probation. The circuit court also ordered that appellant pay restitution in the amount of $400. Appellant noted a timely appeal in which they raise two questions for our review. We rephrase those questions as follows:

I. Did the defendant properly preserve the issue for appeal?

II. Did the trial court abuse its discretion by ordering the defendant to pay restitution?
