Holdings:

The Maryland Court made the following holding:
  • Md. Code Ann., Crim. Law § 11-207 makes it illegal to, among other things, knowingly promote, distribute, or possess with the intent to distribute any matter, visual representation, or performance that depicts a minor engaged as a subject of sadomasochistic abuse or sexual conduct.
  • Several factors exists that may be taken into consideration when deciding whether an abuse of discretion occurred in a trial court’s denial of a motion for a mistrial. But, no single factor is determinative in any case, nor are the factors themselves the test. The factors merely help to evaluate whether the defendant was prejudiced. Some of those factors are: whether the reference to the inadmissible evidence was repeated or whether it was a single, isolated statement; whether the reference was solicited by counsel, or was an inadvertent and unresponsive statement; whether the witness making the reference is the principal witness upon which the entire prosecution depends; the timeliness of the curative instruction; and whether a great deal of other evidence exists. If a curative instruction is given, the instruction must be timely, accurate, and effective.
