King v. Commonwealth

Facts:

Defendant sought review of a judgment from the Circuit Court of Fairfax (Virginia), which entered convictions on assorted counts of producing sexually explicit material, carnal knowledge, aggravated sexual battery, and indecent liberties brought by plaintiff Commonwealth.

If you are facing a criminal case in Virginia, contact a SRIS Law Group lawyer for help. You can reach us at 888-437-7747

Holdings:

The Virginia Court made the following holding:

  • All the elements of the crime of taking indecent liberties are not included in the crime of aggravated sexual battery. Only individuals over age eighteen who maintain a custodial relationship with the victim can be convicted of taking indecent liberties. Thus, the commission of aggravated sexual battery by a person under age eighteen would not constitute the crime of taking indecent liberties. This distinction alone is enough to render aggravated sexual battery and taking indecent liberties distinct offenses.
  • The commission of aggravated sexual assault by a person not in a custodial relationship with the victim would not constitute the crime of taking indecent liberties. The requirement of custodial relationship is not merely a basis for enhancing punishment. Under Va. Code Ann. § 18.2-370.1, the custodial relationship the accused maintains with respect to the victim is a predicate to guilt. Only those persons who maintain a custodial relationship with their victim can be convicted under § 18.2-370.1.

Stephen v. Commonwealth

Facts:

Defendant appealed from a judgment of the Circuit in Fairfax (Virginia), rendered following a bench trial, which convicted him of aggravated sexual battery pursuant to the provisions of Va. Code Ann. § 18.2-67.3.

If you are facing a criminal case in Virginia, contact a SRIS Law Group lawyer for help.  You can reach us at 888-437-7747

Holdings:

The Virginia Court made the following holding:

  • Because sexual offenses are typically clandestine in nature, seldom involving witnesses to the offense except the perpetrator and the victim, a requirement of corroboration would result in most sex offenses going unpunished. Consequently, rape and attempted rape convictions may be sustained solely upon the testimony of the victim. There is no requirement of corroboration. Persuasive authority extends this rule to prosecutions for sodomy and other sexual offenses.
  • Sexual battery is the intentional touching of the intimate parts of the complaining witness by the accused with the intent to sexually molest, arouse, or gratify either the complaining witness or the accused. Va. Code Ann. §§ 18.2-67.3, 18.2-67.10(6)(a). While aggravated sexual battery is different from attempted rape in that an intent to have sexual intercourse is not required, aggravated sexual battery is markedly similar to attempted rape where the victim is female and her genitalia is touched by the perpetrator's penis. Moreover, logic dictates that the reasons that support the rule that a conviction for attempted rape may be supported solely upon the testimony of the victim without further corroboration are equally applicable to prosecutions for aggravated sexual battery under Va. Code Ann. § 18.2-67.3. Accordingly, there is no requirement for corroboration under § 18.2-67.3.

Mike v. Commonwealth

Facts:

Defendant sought review of the judgment of the Circuit Court of Fairfax (Virginia), which convicted him of animate object sexual penetration, in violation of Va. Code Ann. § 18.2-67.2, and aggravated sexual battery, in violation of Va. Code Ann. § 18.2-67.3. Defendant contended that the trial court violated his Fifth Amendment right against double jeopardy by imposing multiple punishments for a single criminal act.

Holdings:

The Virginia Court made the following holding:

  • In a prosecution for two crimes in the same trial, the double jeopardy defense does not apply unless (a) the defendant is twice punished for one criminal act and (b) the two punishments are either for the same crime or one punishment is for a crime which is a lesser included offense of the other.
  • While object sexual penetration and aggravated sexual battery have some elements in common, not every commission of object sexual penetration is a commission of aggravated sexual battery. Object penetration does not require proof of an intent to sexually molest, arouse, or gratify any person as required for conviction of aggravated sexual battery. Aggravated sexual battery is not composed entirely of elements that are also elements of object sexual penetration. Aggravated sexual battery has an additional element that object sexual penetration does not and, therefore, it cannot be a lesser-included offense of object sexual penetration.
  • A plain reading of Va. Code Ann. § 18.2-67.2 establishes that the Virginia Code merely requires proof of penetration of a named sexual part, not proof of lascivious intent.

Fred v. Commonwealth

Facts:

Defendant appealed from a judgment of the Circuit Court of Fairfax (Virginia) convicting him of aggravated sexual battery, through the use of the victim's mental incapacity, in violation of Va. Code Ann. § 18.2-67.3.

If you are facing a criminal case in Virginia, contact a SRIS Law Group lawyer for help.  You can reach us at 888-437-7747

Holdings:

The Virginia Court made the following holding:

  • The legislative purpose of Va. Code Ann. § 18.2-61(A)(ii) is to protect persons who are mentally impaired or retarded from being sexually exploited due to their mental incapacity. However, such statutes must not be interpreted and applied in a manner that creates an unintended rule that would prohibit all mentally impaired or retarded persons from engaging in consensual sexual intercourse without having their partners commit a felony. By specifically defining mental incapacity, the legislature has chosen to protect those mentally deficient persons whose mental condition prevents them from understanding the nature and consequences of the sexual act involved. Va. Code Ann. § 18.2-67.10(3). Va. Code Ann. § 18.2-67.3 also protects mentally impaired individuals, specifically those persons who lack an understanding of the nature and consequences of sexual acts, from sexual exploitation.
  • A mentally incapacitated individual may not have the capacity to make a volitional choice to engage or not engage in a sexual act due to their lack of understanding of the nature and consequences of the sexual act. Accordingly, when an individual is mentally incapacitated under Va. Code Ann. § 18.2-67.10(3), the individual is incapable of legally consenting to the sexual touching, on the grounds that consent without understanding is no consent at all.

Holdings:

The Virginia Court made the following holding:

  • An accused shall be guilty of inanimate or animate object sexual penetration if he or she penetrates the labia majora or anus of a complaining witness and if the act is accomplished against the will of the complaining witness, by force, threat or intimidation of or against the complaining witness or another person, or through the use of the complaining witness's mental incapacity or physical helplessness. Va. Code Ann. § 18.2-67.
  • In a case interpreting the word "force" as it is used in Va. Code Ann. § 18.2-67.3 (aggravated sexual battery), the issue is whether, on the facts of the case a mere nonconsensual touching of the intimate parts of the complaining witness comes within the statutorily defined criminal act or whether some additional force is required. The legislature intended some force other than merely that force required to accomplish the unlawful touching to be included within the statutorily defined criminal acts of either sexual battery or aggravated sexual battery.

Row v. Commonwealth

Facts:

The evidence was not sufficient to support defendant's conviction in Fairfax for aggravated sexual battery, in violation of Va. Code Ann. § 18.2-67.3, because testimony from defendant's daughter did not slightly corroborate the corpus delicti of the offense involving defendant's extrajudicial confession to inappropriate sexual behavior with his grandson

Holdings:

The Virginia Court made the following holding:

  • When reviewing a defendant's challenge to the sufficiency of the evidence to sustain a conviction, the Supreme Court of Virginia reviews the evidence in the light most favorable to the Commonwealth, as the prevailing party at trial, and considers all inferences fairly deducible from that evidence. The lower court will be reversed only if that court's judgment is plainly wrong or without evidence to support it.
  • To the extent that circumstantial evidence establishes a defendant's mere opportunity to commit the corpus delicti, this is insufficient to provide slight corroboration. The Commonwealth must go further and present evidence of such circumstances as will, when taken in connection with the confession, establish the occurrence of the corpus delicti beyond a reasonable doubt.

Holdings:

The Virginia Court made the following holding:

  • Trial courts have the authority to interpret their own orders. When construing a lower court's order, a reviewing court should give deference to the interpretation adopted by the lower court. A lower court's discretion to interpret its own order is not unlimited, however. It must be exercised reasonably and not arbitrarily or capriciously. Thus, a trial court's interpretation of its own order will be deferred to on appeal absent an abuse of discretion.
  • In examining the record to determine the nature and extent of a trial court's action, an appellate court generally starts with a trial court's orders. A trial court speaks through its orders and those orders are presumed to accurately reflect what transpired.
