ANTHONY CLARK v. STATE OF MARYLAND

Criminal law — Sufficiency of the evidence — Gun possession by convicted felon

On November 15, 2017, appellant, Anthony Jerome Clark Jr., was convicted by a jury sitting in the Circuit Court for Baltimore City of possession of a regulated firearm after having been convicted of a disqualifying crime. The court sentenced him to fifteen years of incarceration without the possibility of parole.

This timely appeal followed wherein he argues that the “trial court erred in allowing the State to mislead the jury about critical DNA evidence at closing argument” and that the evidence was legally insufficient to sustain his conviction.
