ROBERT LEE MOORE v. STATE OF MARYLAND

Criminal law — Sufficiency of evidence — Sexual abuse of minor

A jury in the Circuit Court for Wicomico County convicted Robert Lee Moore of sexual abuse of a minor by a household member, two counts of third-degree sex offense, and second-degree assault. The trial court sentenced Moore to 35 years’ incarceration—25 years’ incarceration for sexual abuse of a minor and 5 years’ incarceration for each count of third-degree sex offense.

On appeal, Moore asserts that the evidence was insufficient to support a finding that he and the victim were members of the same “household,” and therefore, his conviction for sexual abuse of a minor must be reversed.
