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.

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.
