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).
