Criminal procedure — Motion to suppress evidence — Recorded telephone conversation
Following a jury trial in the Circuit Court for Montgomery County, David Glenn Seal (“Seal”), appellant, was convicted of child sexual abuse, four counts of third-degree sex offense, and six counts of second-degree sex offense. Seal was sentenced to fifteen years’ incarceration for child sexual abuse. The court sentenced Seal to a consecutive fifteen-year period of incarceration for one count of second-degree sex offense. The court further sentenced Seal to a consecutive fifteen-year period of incarceration for a second count of second-degree sex offense. Concurrent sentences were imposed for the remaining counts.
On appeal, Seal presents three issues for our review, which we have rephrased as follows:
- Whether the trial court erred by denying Seal’s motion to suppress a recorded telephone conversation between Seal and the victim.
- Whether the trial court erred by declining to propound Seal’s requested jury instruction.
- Whether the evidence was sufficient to sustain Seal’s conviction for child sexual abuse.
