Holdings:

The Virginia Court made the following holding:
  • On appeal from a criminal conviction, an appellate court views the evidence in the light most favorable to the Commonwealth and grants to it all reasonable inferences fairly deducible therefrom.
  • Reckless handling of a firearm may not be limited to a handling so gross, wanton or culpable as to show a reckless disregard of human life.
  • Reckless conduct proscribed in a firearm statute can be less culpable than the conduct necessary for involuntary manslaughter. However, it must be more than that necessary for ordinary negligence. Inadvertent acts of negligence without recklessness, while giving rise to civil liability, will not suffice to impose criminal liability. The culpable conduct necessary for reckless conduct falls between the criminal negligence necessary for involuntary manslaughter and ordinary negligence. As with willful conduct, reckless conduct requires an awareness that serious injury will likely result.
