Criminal procedure — Jury reinstruction — Reasonable doubt
After a jury trial in the Circuit Court for Cecil County, Timothy Brooks Whitt, appellant, was found guilty of two counts of first-degree assault. He was sentenced to incarceration for concurrent terms of twenty-five years, with five years suspended. This timely appeal followed.
Whitt presents the following questions for our consideration: I. Did the trial court err by refusing to reinstruct the jury on reasonable doubt, after misreading the instruction? II. Did the trial court rely on impermissible considerations in imposing a sentence?
