Virginia Simple Assault Lawyers Violation Code 18.2-42

Holdings:

The Virginia Court made the following holding:
  • The term “mob” is defined as any collection of people, assembled for the purpose and with the intention of committing an assault or a battery upon any person. Va. Code Ann. § 18.2-38. In order to sustain a conviction of assault or battery by mob under Va. Code Ann. § 18.2-42, the evidence must establish that the accused was a member of a mob and that the mob committed simple assault or battery. The statutory definition of a mob requires that the act of assembling be done for a specific purpose and with a specific intent – to commit an assault or a battery. The act of assembling with that specific purpose and intent distinguishes mob behavior from merely individual behavior while part of a group. However, the group need not have originally assembled with such purpose and intent in mind. Rather, it is possible that individuals who are lawfully assembled may become members of a “mob” without great deliberation. Whether a group of individuals becomes a “mob” depends upon the circumstances and no particular words or express agreements are required to effect a change in a group’s purpose or intentions.
  • Once an assembled group becomes a mob under Va. Code Ann. § 18.2-38, every person composing the mob becomes criminally culpable even though the member may not have actively encouraged, aided, or countenanced the act of assault or battery. Thus, criminal accountability flows from being a member of the mob, regardless of whether the member aids and abets in the assault and battery.

Facts:

Defendant and two sub-tenants, a woman and her nine-year-old daughter, lived in the house that defendant burned.  At the time of the fire, the woman and her daughter had gone out to rent a movie.  After starting the fire, defendant also left. Defendant argued that he was guilty of a Class 3 felony, rather than a Class 2 felony, because the dwelling was unoccupied when he set fire to it.  The trial court considered defendant’s plea at his sentencing hearing and rejected it.  Defendant challenged his conviction for arson of an occupied dwelling, a Class 2 felony, under Va. Code Ann. § 18.2-77 entered by the Circuit Court of Fairfax (Virginia).

Holdings:

The Virginia Court made the following holding:
  • The Fourth Amendment protects the curtilage of a house and the extent of the curtilage is determined by factors that bear upon whether an individual reasonably may expect that the area in question should be treated as the home itself. When government agents conduct a search or seizure within protected areas of a dwelling without a warrant such actions are presumptively unreasonable and unlawful unless they are supported by both probable cause and exigent circumstances.

Peterson v. Commonwealth

Facts:

Defendant and two sub-tenants, a woman and her nine-year-old daughter, lived in the house that defendant burned.  At the time of the fire, the woman and her daughter had gone out to rent a movie.  After starting the fire, defendant also left. Defendant argued that he was guilty of a Class 3 felony, rather than a Class 2 felony, because the dwelling was unoccupied when he set fire to it.  The trial court considered defendant’s plea at his sentencing hearing and rejected it.  Defendant challenged his conviction for arson of an occupied dwelling, a Class 2 felony, under Va. Code Ann. § 18.2-77 entered by the Circuit Court of Fairfax (Virginia).

The Virginia Court made the following holding:
  • Burning a building that is not usually occupied by persons lodging therein at night, is a Class 3 felony, if it is done at a time when any person is therein, but only a Class 4 felony if it is done when no person is in such building. Va. Code Ann. § 18.2-79. Similarly, burning any other building or structure at a time when no person is in such building is a Class 4 felony, instead of a Class 3 felony, if otherwise. Va. Code Ann. § 18.2-80. The phrase “temporarily unoccupied” that is used in Va. Code Ann. § 18.2-77 has a different meaning.

Franklin v. Commonwealth

Facts:

Defendants hosted a party for their 16-year-old child at which alcoholic beverages were served.  A police officer responded to a call reporting underage drinking and observed, after driving up the residence driveway, young people in the backyard with beer bottles in their hands. When the young people saw the officer, they began to flee.  The officer then entered the backyard without a warrant and observed numerous empty alcohol bottles.  Defendants contended that the warrantless search violated the Fourth Amendment and that the penalties were illegally imposed.  The trial court and court of appeals disagreed.

The Virginia Court made the following holding:
  • The Fourth Amendment protects the curtilage of a house and the extent of the curtilage is determined by factors that bear upon whether an individual reasonably may expect that the area in question should be treated as the home itself. When government agents conduct a search or seizure within protected areas of a dwelling without a warrant such actions are presumptively unreasonable and unlawful unless they are supported by both probable cause and exigent circumstances.
