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..

Brown v. Commonwealth

Facts:

            Defendant was convicted of driving under the influence of alcohol (DUI), and operating a motor vehicle after having been adjudicated a habitual offender, and while under the influence of alcohol. Defendant filed a plea in bar asserting that he could not be convicted of both the habitual offender charge and the DUI charge, as the DUI was an element of the specific habitual offender charge and therefore a lesser-included offense.

DUI Richmond Lawyers Virginia Influence Alcohol Habitual Offender

Holdings:

The Virginia Court made the following holding:
  • A habitual offender who operates a motor vehicle while he is under the influence of alcohol or drugs should be punished more severely for violating that proscription than one whose operation does not involve such aggravating circumstances. Specifically, the legislature has elevated the offense to felony status when the magnitude of the offender’s misconduct is compounded in this manner. The general assembly has enhanced the punishment for habitual offender offenses.
  • In determining the intent of the general assembly, courts should consider the structure of the Code of Virginia, the language of the statutes, legislative history, and the logical implications of each interpretation.
