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.

Assault Misdemeanor Virginia Lawyers Battery Crimes Fairfax Richmond Beach Loudoun Prince William

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.

Holder v. Commonwealth

Facts:

Officers were dispatched to defendant’s home in response to a complaint involving what turned out to be, after interviewing several people, misdemeanor family assault charges against defendant. An officer told defendant he was under arrest for the misdemeanor assaults. The officers then attempted to open the door to defendant’s home. Defendant resisted by trying to keep the door shut. In the process, defendant struck an officer, the door was opened, and defendant was arrested without a warrant for the misdemeanor assaults as well as the charges in this indictment, two counts of assault and battery of a law enforcement officer in violation of Va. Code Ann. § 18.2-57(c).  The defendant moved to suppress his arrest.  The issue was whether defendant was lawfully arrested, and, if not, whether his resistance to arrest was unreasonable.

Davis v. Commonwealth

Facts:

Defendant was charged with a felony involving the distribution of marijuana in Fairfax. After the jury found defendant guilty of the felony, the trial court set aside the felony verdict because the prosecutor had failed to prove the weight of the marijuana involved. On retrial for the lesser-included misdemeanor offense of distributing marijuana, the trial court denied defendant’s request to dismiss the charge on double jeopardy grounds. On appeal, defendant argued that double jeopardy applied and that the trial court erred when it refused to dismiss the charge. The court rejected defendant’s argument. The court found that defendant was not acquitted of the lesser-included misdemeanor for double jeopardy purposes by the trial court’s ruling. The court further noted that the jury’s verdict on the felony charge established that sufficient evidence had been presented at trial to sustain a verdict for the misdemeanor charge of distribution of marijuana. The court pointed out that had the trial court denied defendant’s motion to set aside the felony verdict, and defendant had appealed that decision to the court, the result would have been identical to the trial court’s disposition of this case.

Felony Distribution Virginia Lawyers Marijuana Evidence

Holdings:

The Virginia Court made the following holding:
  • The consistent practice in Virginia, when the evidence is found insufficient to sustain a felony conviction on appeal, but sufficient to sustain a conviction on a lesser-included misdemeanor offense, is to remand the case for retrial on the lesser-included offense. This practice is consistent with case law from other jurisdictions that holds that a post-trial finding of insufficient evidence to support a conviction requires an acquittal only as to the greater charge for which the evidence was insufficient, but does not require acquittal of a lesser-included offense adequately supported by the evidence.
