North v. Commonwealth

Facts:

Defendant contended that the retention of the funds did not constitute larceny. Throughout his trial in Fairfax, defendant defended a charge of grand larceny, the only crime he had been accused of committing. Defendant’s indictment notified him that he was being charged with grand larceny of property belonging to his employer; the Commonwealth did not propose any other theory for convicting defendant until it respondent to defendant’s motion to set aside the verdict. The appellate court found that the indictment did not provide defendant sufficient notice to adequately prepare to defend the accusations made against him. Amendments to the embezzlement statute changed the law so as to prohibit a conviction for larceny upon an indictment for larceny and proof of embezzlement. The general assembly intended the current version of Va. Code Ann. § 18.2-111 to preclude conviction under an indictment for larceny on proof of embezzlement. Therefore, proof of embezzlement did not support defendant’s conviction under the indictment alleging larceny.

Holdings:

The Virginia Court made the following holding:
  • To prove embezzlement, the Commonwealth must prove defendant wrongfully appropriated to his use or benefit, with the intent to deprive the owner thereof, the property entrusted to him by virtue of his employment or office. Subsequent amendments to the embezzlement statute, Va. Code Ann. § 18.2-111, changed that law so as to prohibit a conviction for larceny upon an indictment for larceny and proof of embezzlement.
