  • A prosecution for offenses under both Va. Code § 18.2-308 (carrying a concealed weapon) and § 18.2-308.2 (convicted felon possessing a firearm) is valid because each charge possesses different, required elements in order to obtain a conviction. Va. Code § 19.2-294 does not bar the felony prosecution because both charges are distinct..
