Criminal law — Motion to suppress evidence — Showup identification

Appellant Namon Leggett, was found guilty of carjacking, robbery, second-degree assault, and theft of a motor vehicle by a jury in the Circuit Court for Baltimore City. He was sentenced to 30 years imprisonment (with all but 12 years suspended) for the carjacking, and concurrent terms of 8 years for the robbery, 3 years for the second-degree assault, and 3 years for the theft.

This timely appeal followed. Leggett presents two issues for our consideration: I. Whether the circuit court erred in denying a motion to suppress a showup identification; and, II. Whether his second-degree assault conviction should have merged into the robbery conviction.
