McCree v. StateAnnotate this Case
The State charged Petitioner with several crimes, including violating Maryland’s trademark counterfeiting statute, Md. Code Ann. Crim. Law (CR) 8-611. Petitioner field a motion to dismiss the charges for violating CR 8-611 on the ground that the statute is constitutional. Specifically, Petitioner contended that CR 8-611 is facially overbroad because it criminalizes conduct that the First Amendment protects and is facially void for vagueness because it does not clearly define “intellectual property.” The circuit court denied the motion to dismiss, and a jury convicted Petitioner of violating CR 8-611. The Court of Special Appeals affirmed. The Court of Appeals affirmed, holding that CR 8-611 is not facially overbroad or void for vagueness.
