CORNELL A. BENNETT v. STATE OF MARYLAND

CRIMINAL PROCEDURE -- MOTION TO SUPPRESS -- PRETRIAL IDENTIFICATION FROM PHOTO ARRAY Appellant was tried and convicted of carjacking, kidnapping, robbery, and conspiracy to commit kidnapping in the Circuit Court for Prince George’s County. The circuit court imposed a sentence of thirty years’ imprisonment, with all suspended but ten years, for carjacking; a consecutive term of thirty years, with all suspended but twelve years, for kidnapping; a concurrent term of thirty years, with all suspended but twelve years, for conspiracy to commit kidnapping; and a concurrent term of fifteen years, with all suspended but five years, for robbery. The circuit court also placed appellant on supervised probation for five years. Appellant now appeals his convictions and presents the following questions for our review, which we have slightly rephrased: I. Did the circuit court err where it failed to suppress an extrajudicial pre-trial identification of appellant from a photographic array? II. Did the circuit court err where it admitted irrelevant hearsay?
