ROBERT QUITMAN CUNNINGHAM, JR. v. STATE OF MARYLAND

Criminal law — Sufficiency of evidence — Second-degree assault

Following a bench trial in the Circuit Court for Caroline County, Robert Quitman Cunningham, Jr., appellant, was convicted of second-degree assault. The court imposed a sentence of three years’ incarceration, all but six months suspended, and three years of supervised probation.

Cunningham noted a timely appeal from his conviction and presents us with the following three questions: 1. Did the trial court err in admitting hearsay testimony by Rene Stafford? 2. Did the trial court err in admitting hearsay captured within Officer Ashley Collison’s body camera video? 3. Is the evidence insufficient to sustain the conviction for second degree assault?
