MARCUS LOGAN VAUGHN v. STATE OF MARYLAND

Criminal law — Sufficiency of evidence — Use of firearm

This case is before us on appeal from the Circuit Court for Allegany County, where the appellant, Marcus Vaughn (“Vaughn”), was convicted of multiple counts stemming from an armed home invasion. Vaughn raises three contentions on appeal.

First, he contends that there was insufficient evidence to sustain his conviction for use of a firearm in the commission of a crime of violence. Second, he contends that the trial court abused its discretion in admitting a piece of physical evidence because it was both irrelevant and unfairly prejudicial. Finally, he contends that the trial court abused its discretion in its voir dire of a juror who failed to disclose a connection to the Assistant State’s Attorney.
