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.

Evidence of prior driving under the influence (DUI) convictions does not constitute the traffic record as contemplated by § 46.2-943 where the offense charged under Va. Code Ann. § 18.2-266 is a subsequent offense of DUI punishable under Va. Code Ann. § 18.2-270. Proof of such charge requires proof of prior DUI convictions.

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.
