Publisher Description

Opinion Appellant Robert C. Painter Jr. challenges the sufficiency of the evidence that was used to convict him in the Circuit Court for Frederick County in what may be the closest thing to a ""rustling"" case a Maryland court may ever see. Appellant, it seems, stole a number of calves from two different Maryland farms over a one week period and then sold them at a livestock auction in Pennsylvania. While hardly the stuff of campfire legends, it did result in his being convicted of two counts of theft and one count of theft by continuing scheme. What makes this appeal noteworthy, however, is not the novelty or the nature of his crime, but appellant's claim that his convictions should be overturned under the Interstate Agreement on Detainers Act (""IAD""), Md. Code (1999), §§ 8-402 to 8-411 of the Correctional Services Article (""CSA""). At the time that he was charged in Frederick County, Maryland with these offenses, he was incarcerated in Fulton County, Pennsylvania. After waiving extradition, he was transported to Maryland and convicted by a jury in the Circuit Court for Frederick County of the Maryland offenses.
