Jackson v. State

Facts:

Defendant appealed from his conviction in the Circuit Court for Baltimore (Maryland) for child abuse and a third-degree sexual offense. Defendant challenged the sufficiency of the evidence; the admission of testimony from his victim, wife, and mother; and the trial court’s use of impermissible sentencing considerations. Defendant also argued that double jeopardy prevented his separate conviction and sentence for both charged offenses.

Holdings:

The Maryland Court made the following holding:
  • Child abuse may consist of either: (i) the sustaining of physical injury by a child as a result of cruel or inhumane treatment or as a result of a malicious act by any parent or other person who has permanent or temporary care or custody or responsibility for supervision of a child under circumstances that indicate that the child’s health or welfare is harmed or threatened thereby; or (ii) sexual abuse of a child, whether physical injuries are sustained or not.
  • One of the recognized exceptions to the “other crimes” exclusionary rule is where the evidence shows a passion or propensity for illicit sexual relations with the particular person who is the victim of the charged offense.
