Holdings:

The Virginia Court made the following holding:
  • Under Va. Code Ann. § 46.2-943, a defendant is entitled to a bifurcated trial in which his prior convictions will not be introduced until after a finding of guilt. Evidence of prior driving under the influence (DUI) convictions does not constitute the traffic record as contemplated by § 46.2-943 where the offense charged under Va. Code Ann. § 18.2-266 is a subsequent offense of DUI punishable under Va. Code Ann. § 18.2-270. Proof of such charge requires proof of prior DUI convictions.
