JOHN ANDREW FERDOCK, III v. STATE OF MARYLAND

Criminal law — Sufficiency of the evidence — Theft

John Andrew Ferdock, III, appellant, was convicted at a bench trial in the Circuit Court for Talbot County of theft between $1,500 and $25,000. The court imposed a sentence of 18 months of imprisonment, all but 90 days suspended, and ordered him to pay $3,884.10 in restitution and to serve three years of probation upon his release from prison.

Appellant raises two questions on appeal, which we have slightly rephrased for clarity: I. Was the evidence sufficient to sustain his conviction? II. Did the court err in ordering him to pay $3,884.10 in restitution because allegedly, all the stolen money was offset by wages retained by his employer?
