Jackson v. Commonwealth

Facts:

When defendant attempted to sell drugs to a minor, the police secured the permission of her parents to involve the minor in the investigation. Defendant was arrested and charged with distributing cocaine to a minor when he attempted to carry out a drug transaction with the minor.  Defendant appealed his conviction.  On appeal, the court affirmed the conviction that was entered by the trial court. The court held that, when the evidence was viewed in the light most favorable to the theory of entrapment, it was still clear that defendant initiated the drug transaction with the minor and that the police merely afforded an opportunity for him to commit the offense. The court further rejected defendant’s contention that the Commonwealth had to prove he knew the girl was a minor.

Holdings:

The Virginia Court made the following holding:
  • The mere fact that a defendant testifies that an undercover operative first brought up the subject of drugs does not entitle him to an instruction on entrapment.
  • The phrase, “knowingly or intentionally,” in Va. Code Ann. § 18.2-255, modifies the phrase, “distribute any drug..” The Commonwealth is required to prove that a defendant knowingly or intentionally distributed a controlled drug. The statute does not require proof that a defendant knew the age of his drug purchaser.
