Holdings:

            The Maryland Court made the following holding:

  • A defendant's right to counsel in a criminal case is guaranteed by U.S. Const. amend. VI, made applicable to the states through the Fourteenth Amendment, and Md. Const. Decl. Rights art. 21. The constitutional right to self-representation is the corollary of the constitutional right to counsel.
  • When an accused manages his own defense, he relinquishes many of the traditional benefits associated with the right to counsel. Therefore, for a defendant's waiver of counsel to be effective, the accused must "knowingly and intelligently" forgo those relinquished benefits. Among other things, a defendant choosing self-representation should be made aware of the dangers and disadvantages of self-representation, so that the record will establish that he knows what he is doing and his choice is made with eyes open. Moreover, acquiescence in the loss of such a right is never presumed.
