JAMES E. JOHNSON v. STATE OF MARYLAND

Criminal procedure — Voir dire — Exclusion of defendant

James Johnson was convicted in the Circuit Court for Anne Arundel County of second-degree assault he committed against a woman he met on Match.com. On appeal, Mr. Johnson argues the circuit court erred in excluding him from a portion of voir dire and in permitting two police officers to testify over a hearsay objection. He also argues that his
sentence is illegal because it should be limited to the maximum term allowed for fourth-degree sex offense.
