Scarton v. Commonwealth

Facts:

Defendant was charged with misdemeanor possession of marijuana, in violation of Va. Code Ann. § 18.2-250.1, and felony delivery of marijuana to a prisoner, in violation of Va. Code Ann. § 18.2-474.1, and he filed a motion to dismiss the charge, arguing that prosecution would violate his rights against double jeopardy.  Defendant contends that his conviction of the offense for possession of marijuana is a lesser-included offense of his second conviction for delivering marijuana to a prisoner.  The Circuit Court of Loudoun (Virginia) denied the motion, held a bench trial, and convicted defendant of the offense.  Defendant appealed.

Holdings:

The Virginia Court made the following holding:
  • Possession of marijuana is not a lesser-included offense of delivering marijuana to a prisoner, in violation of Va. Code Ann. § 18.2-474.1.
  • Where the same act or transaction constitutes a violation of two distinct statutory provisions, the test to be applied to determine whether there are two offenses or only one, is whether each provision requires proof of a fact which the other does not. A single act may be an offense against two statutes, and if each statute requires proof of an additional fact which the other does not, an acquittal or conviction under either statute does not exempt the defendant from prosecution and punishment under the other.
