TREVIN JENKINS v. STATE OF MARYLAND

Trevin Jenkins was convicted in the Circuit Court for Prince George’s County of attempted murder, assault, and use of a handgun in the commission of a crime of violence in connection with a shooting on September 8, 2010. On appeal, Mr. Jenkins argues that the State did not introduce evidence sufficient to support his conviction for use of a handgun in the commission of a crime of violence. He also identifies problems in the instructions provided to the jury and in comments made by the prosecutor during closing argument. We agree that the State did not introduce evidence sufficient to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that Mr. Jenkins used a handgun in the shooting, and we reverse his conviction for use of a handgun in the commission of a crime of violence. We disagree with Mr. Jenkins’s other arguments and affirm his remaining convictions.
