The Maryland Court of Special Appeals held that the statue was constitutional because the meaning of the words used could be derived by their common usage by a person of normal intelligence. In interpreting statutes, the court held that a statute is not void for vagueness if the meanings of the words used could be easily determined from court proceedings, dictionaries, or common usage. Using this standard, the Maryland statute was constitutional.
