Holdings:

The Virginia Court made the following holding:
  • Lack of responsiveness is a valid, race-neutral reason for exercising a peremptory strike. In-court observations provide further information about a potential juror and may be incorporated into decisions made by the trial court. For these reasons, the Supreme Court of Virginia gives substantial deference to the decision of the trial court in this area. The trial court's determination that peremptory strikes were not racially motivated will not be disturbed unless the findings are clearly erroneous.
  • In conducting the proportionality review of a death sentence, the applicable test is whether other sentencing bodies in Virginia generally impose the supreme penalty for comparable or similar crimes, considering both the crime and the defendant.

Johnson v. Commonwealth

Facts:

Appellant, who had been indicted for second degree murder in connection with the death of his infant daughter, filed an appeal of his conviction by the Circuit Court of Loudoun, Virginia, of involuntary manslaughter.

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:

  • Involuntary manslaughter is a lesser-included offense of murder. In an indictment for murder, the elements of crime embraced therein are murder, voluntary manslaughter, involuntary manslaughter, and simple assault.
  • If there is any evidence that would support a conviction for the lesser included offense, the trial court must, upon request of counsel, instruct the jury as to the lesser included offense. An instruction, however, must be based on more than a scintilla of evidence. An instruction is properly refused when it is unsupported by the evidence.
  • Criminal negligence as the basis for involuntary manslaughter is judged under an objective standard and, therefore, may be found to exist where the offender either knew or should have known the probable results of his acts. Thus, criminal negligence is acting consciously in disregard of another person's rights or acting with reckless indifference to the consequences, with the defendant aware, from his knowledge of existing circumstances and conditions, that his conduct probably would cause injury to another.

A person violates § 18.2-57(C) if she commits an assault or an assault and battery against another person, knowing or having reason to know that the other person is a law enforcement officer engaged in the performance of his public duties. Nothing in the language of § 18.2-57(C) indicates a desire by the legislature to mitigate the offense if an officer is accidentally assaulted by the accused striking out in general.
