Criminal procedure — Motion to suppress evidence — Surveillance video
Appellant, Travis Porter, was indicted in the Circuit Court for Howard County, Maryland, and charged with second-degree burglary and theft of property of value less than $1,000.00. After he was convicted by a jury on these charges, appellant was sentenced to concurrent sentences of three years for second-degree burglary and theft under $1,000.00, with all but one year suspended, to be followed by three years of supervised probation.
Appellant timely appealed and presents the following questions for our review: 1. Did the trial court err in (a) admitting into evidence a surveillance video without proper authentication, and (b) in permitting prosecution witnesses to narrate the events purportedly depicted by the video? 2. Did the trial court err in admitting hearsay evidence?
