Reckless Driving Second Offense in Fairfax, Virginia

Millard Jr. v. Commonwealth

Facts:

The trial court convicted defendant of reckless driving and overruled his motions to set aside the verdict and for a new trial. Defendant claimed that the trial court erred in permitting the introduction of evidence relating to his previous reckless driving conviction. On appeal, the court reversed. The Commonwealth had been permitted to introduce evidence of defendant’s previous conviction and the trial court instructed the jury regarding the penalties for a second offense of reckless driving.

Holdings:

The Virginia Court made the following holding:
  • Where an offense is punishable with a higher penalty, because it is a second or subsequent offense of the same kind, the more severe punishment cannot be inflicted unless the indictment charges that it is a second or subsequent offense. Under rules of criminal pleading the indictment must contain an averment of facts essential to the punishment to be inflicted.
  • Va. Code Ann. § 19-296 imposes upon the clerk of the court the duty to make up a statement of all the expenses incident to the prosecution and issue an execution thereof. The costs of a jury are an expense incident to the prosecution, and its collection violates no constitutional right of the accused.
