Moors v. Commonwealth

Facts:

Defendant sought review of a judgment from the Circuit Court for Fairfax (Virginia), which convicted defendant of burglary with intent to commit a felony and of assault and battery.  In finding the evidence sufficient to prove that defendant committed the crimes, the court held that the jury was entitled to reject the alibi testimony because determining the credibility of witnesses who gave conflicting accounts was within the jury’s exclusive province.  The court also held that defendant was not entitled to an instruction on breaking and entering with the intent to commit a misdemeanor even though defendant was convicted of misdemeanor assault and battery. In so holding, the court noted that defendant entered the apartment with the intent to commit rape, a felony, rather than with the intent to commit a misdemeanor assault and battery.

Holdings:

The Virginia Court made the following holding:
  • When sufficiency of the evidence is challenged on appeal, the court must consider the evidence in a light most favorable to the Commonwealth. An appellate court must discard all evidence of the accused that conflicts with that of the Commonwealth and regard as true all credible evidence favorable to the Commonwealth and all fair inferences reasonably deducible therefrom. A trial court’s judgment approving a jury verdict will not be disturbed on appeal unless contrary to the law or plainly wrong.
