Criminal procedure — Illegal sentence — Ambiguity in pronouncement
Following a 2005 trial in the Circuit Court for Caroline County, a jury found Kenneth Lee Trice, appellant, guilty of second-degree assault on a correctional officer, first-degree escape, carjacking, and related offenses. The court sentenced appellant to 10 years’ imprisonment for second-degree assault, 10 consecutive years’ imprisonment for first-degree escape, and 10 concurrent years’ imprisonment for carjacking. The court merged the remaining convictions for sentencing. In August of 2020, appellant filed a motion to correct an illegal sentence contending that his sentence for carjacking is illegal because he is being required to serve it twice as a result of what he believes is an “ambiguity” in the pronouncement of his sentence.
