DEONTE S. ROBINSON v. STATE OF MARYLAND

Criminal procedure — Motion to suppress evidence — Autopsy photographs of victim

A jury in the Circuit Court for Baltimore County convicted Deonte Robinson, (“Appellant”), of first-degree assault and conspiracy to distribute a controlled dangerous substance—marijuana. Appellant was sentenced to a total of 30 years’ imprisonment. In this appeal, Appellant presents the following questions for our review, which we have rephrased and reordered:

1. Did the circuit court err in denying the motion to suppress a pretrial identification of Appellant?

2. Did the trial court err by admitting autopsy photographs of the victim?

3. Was the evidence sufficient to sustain Appellant’s convictions?
