Lawrence v. Commonwealth

Facts:

Defendant was convicted in the Circuit Court of Fairfax (Virginia) for traffic ticket issued for DUI in violation of Va. Code Ann. § 18.2-266. He had previously pled guilty to speeding in violation of Va. Code Ann. § 46.2-870. Both charges arose from the same course of driving. He asserted that the DUI conviction was barred by Va. Code Ann. § 19.2-294.1 because the speeding conviction constituted a conviction for reckless driving.

Holdings:

The Virginia Court made the following holding:

  • Under the plain and unambiguous terms of Va. Code Ann. § 19.2-294.1, one may not be charged and convicted of both DUI and reckless driving. A conviction of either DUI or reckless driving, whether in simultaneous or successive prosecutions, requires dismissal of the other charge if the other charge arose from the same act or acts. Virginia’s double jeopardy statute, Va. Code Ann. § 19.2-294, prohibits multiple convictions for separate offenses arising out of same act, except where convictions obtained in single prosecution. Reckless driving and speeding are separate and distinct offenses. Va. Code Ann. § 19.2-294.1 provides that whenever any person is charged with driving under the influence of alcohol and reckless driving growing out of the same act or acts and is convicted of one of these charges, the court shall dismiss the remaining charge. Va. Code Ann. § 46.2-862 provides that a person shall be guilty of reckless driving who drives a motor vehicle at a speed of twenty miles per hour or more in excess of the applicable maximum speed limit of forty miles per hour or more.
