On Sept. 29, a convicted homicide defendant voluntarily gave up his post-conviction rights before Baltimore City Circuit Court Judge Charles Blomquist

Patrick Glasco was convicted of first-degree murder and using a handgun while committing a crime in May 20, 2013. 

According to the Baltimore Sun, on Feb. 16, 2011, officers were called to the 1600 block of E. 31st Street for reports of shots being fired, where 22-year-old Martez Anthony Hall was found suffering from a gunshot to his torso.

Glasco, 36, and his defense attorney Gabriel Ellenberger requested for a postponement in order for the defendant to obtain a private attorney.

However, Judge Blomquist denied the postponement request, saying there was no merit to postponing except to delay the proceedings. 

Following Judge Blompuist’s denial, the prosecutor informed the defendant that he was able to file a motion for modification and a motion for review of sentence by a three judge panel, but in exchange Glasco had to give up his post-convictions rights. 

Judge Blomquist told Glasco that by filing the motion for modification and a three judge panel he has to withdraw his previous guilty plea. 

Glasco’s next hearing has yet to be determined.
