Lawrence v. State

Facts:

Defendant was convicted by a jury in the Circuit Court in Baltimore (Maryland) of two counts of manslaughter by automobile, reckless driving, engaging in a speed contest, and speeding. The trial court sentenced defendant to two concurrent eighteen-month terms of imprisonment on manslaughter convictions, with all but six months suspended, and imposed fines on each of the remaining convictions. Defendant who had been imposed with a traffic ticket in the past appealed.

Holdings:

            The Maryland Court made the following holding:

  • In determining whether two offenses are the same for purposes of double jeopardy and the Maryland common law prohibition against multiple punishments for the same crime, a court must first apply the required evidence test. Under this test the required evidence is that which is minimally necessary to secure a conviction for each statutory offense. If each offense requires proof of a fact which the other does not, or in other words, if each offense contains an element which the other does not, the offenses are not the same for double jeopardy purposes, even though arising from the same conduct or episode. But, where only one offense requires proof of an additional fact, so that all elements of one offense are present in the other, the offenses are deemed to be the same for double jeopardy purposes.
  • A person is guilty of reckless driving if he drives a motor vehicle: (1) In wanton or willful disregard for the safety of persons or property; or (2) In a manner that indicates a wanton or willful disregard for the safety of persons or property.
