GARY JAY CUNNINGHAM, JR. v. STATE OF MARYLAND

Criminal law — Sufficiency of evidence — Firearm convictions

Following a jury trial in the Circuit Court for Prince George’s County, Gary Jay Cunningham, Jr., appellant, was convicted of possession of a regulated firearm by a disqualified person; wearing, carrying, or transporting a handgun in a vehicle; wearing, carrying, or transporting a handgun on his person; illegal possession of ammunition; fleeing and eluding by failing to stop a vehicle; and fleeing and eluding by fleeing on foot. On appeal, Mr. Cunningham contends that there was insufficient evidence to sustain his convictions on firearm and ammunition charges because the State failed to prove that he possessed the firearm that was recovered by the police.
