Daniel v. Commonwealth

Facts:

Defendant challenged her conviction and sentence enhancement from Richmond Circuit Court (Virginia), for driving under the influence of alcohol (DUI), a second offense committed within five years, contending that the trial court erroneously relied solely on a Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) transcript, without affirmative proof of representation by or waiver of counsel or information regarding incarceration.

Holdings:

The Virginia Court made the following holding:
  • Va. Code Ann. § 18.2-270 prescribes several penalties for driving under the influence of alcohol (DUI) in violation of Va. Code Ann. § 18.2-266, enhanced for second and subsequent offenses. However, to convict and punish an accused for successive violations, the prior offenses must be charged and proven. Va.

In any such prosecution wherein a necessary element of the offense charged is that defendant was previously convicted of the same or similar offense, (2) that portion of the transcript relating to the relevant prior conviction shall be prima facie evidence of the facts stated therein with respect to the prior offense.

Shaun v. Commonwealth

Facts:

Defendant was arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol (DUI). After submitting to a breath test evidencing his blood alcohol content to be in excess of the legal limit, an administrative license suspension (ALS) was imposed in Richmond. Defendant asserted that his prosecution for DUI was barred by the constitutional prohibition against double jeopardy because of the ALS.

Virginia Lawyers DUI Richmond Blood Content License Suspension

Virginia Lawyers DUI Richmond Blood Content License Suspension

Holdings:

The Virginia Court made the following holding:
  • In both multiple punishment and multiple prosecution contexts, where two offenses for which the defendant is punished or tried cannot survive the same-element test, the double jeopardy bar applies. The same-element test, sometimes referred to as the “Blockburger” test, inquires whether each offense contains an element not contained in the other; if not, they are the “same offense,” and double jeopardy bars additional punishment and successive prosecutions. In a single proceeding, the Double Jeopardy Clause is limited to assuring that the court does not exceed its legislative authority by imposing multiple punishments for the same offense. Under the Virginia statutory scheme, an administrative license suspension and a driving under the influence prosecution are different prongs of a single, coordinated, contemporaneous proceeding.

Peterson v. Commonwealth

Facts:

Following a bench trial in the Circuit Court of the City of Richmond (Virginia), defendant was convicted on an amended indictment alleging that he violated Va. Code Ann. §§ 18.2-266, -270 by unlawfully and feloniously operating a motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol (DUI) after having been convicted of 2 other DUI offenses within 10 years.

Holdings:

The Virginia Court made the following holding:
  • Va. Code Ann. § 18.2-270 enhances the offense and attendant punishment for driving under the influence (DUI) from a misdemeanor to a felony upon conviction of a third or subsequent offense committed within 10 years of an offense under Va. Code Ann. § 18.2-266. The statute does not suggest that convictions for the requisite prior offenses must precede commission of the third or subsequent offense. Therefore, any third or subsequent DUI conviction within the period prescribed by Va. Code Ann. § 18.2-270 triggers the enhanced punishment. Otherwise, an offender could commit multiple unlawful acts of driving under the influence of alcohol without fear of being punished for a felony merely because the offender could not be tried and convicted quickly enough between offenses. An interpretation of the statute that allows a defendant to violate it with impunity would be contrary to the clear legislative intent..

The Virginia Court made the following holding:
  • An habitual offender is defined as one who, within a 10-year period, accumulates three or more convictions singularly or in combination, of the following separate and distinct offenses arising out of separate acts: driving or operating a motor vehicle while under the influence of intoxicants or drugs or driving a motor vehicle while his license, permit or privilege to drive a motor vehicle has been suspended or revoked.
  • If the same act be a violation of two or more statutes, conviction under one of such statutes shall be a bar to a prosecution or proceeding under the other or others. Under this provision, one occasion of driving an automobile may give rise to several acts and offenses and that the test of whether there are separate acts sustaining several offenses is whether the same evidence is required to sustain them.
