Jacob v. Commonwealth

Facts:

Defendant alleged that the Prince William court erred in denying his motion to strike, arguing that he could not be convicted of abduction because any detention of the victim was incidental to the assault. The appellate court disagreed, finding that defendant’s detention of the victim was not incidental to the sexual assault. Defendant did more than touch the victim in a sexual manner. Defendant also covered her mouth, making it more difficult for her to call for help and, consequently, more difficult for the public to detect the crime. The act of covering her mouth did nothing to further the sexual assault itself. Although the detention and sexual assault occurred at approximately the same time, the manner in which defendant restrained the victim was not inherent in the act of sexual assault. Therefore, the trial court properly denied defendant’s motion to strike the abduction charge.

Virginia Lawyers Sexual Assault Prince William Abduction Charge

Holdings:

The Virginia Court made the following holding:
  • When considering whether an abduction is incidental to another crime, courts should consider several factors, including the length of time that the victim was detained, the timing of the abduction and the other crime, the connection between the abduction and the other crime, and the additional danger to the victim created by the detention.   Abduction charges do not apply where the kidnapping or abduction is merely an incident of another crime. In reviewing a trial court’s determination that an abduction was not incidental to another crime, an appellate court defers to the trial court’s factual findings, but it reviews de novo the legal conclusion that the detention was not incidental. One accused of abduction by detention and another crime involving restraint of the victim, both growing out of a continuing course of conduct, is subject upon conviction to separate penalties for separate offenses only when the detention committed in the act of abduction is separate and apart from, and not merely incidental to, the restraint employed in the commission of the other crime.

Virginia Fairfax Sexual Assault Lawyer Rape Battery Abduction Custodial Interrogation

Holdings:

The Virginia Court made the following holding:
  • Where an accused unsuccessfully objects to evidence which he considers improper and then on his own behalf introduces evidence of the same character, he thereby waives his objection, and an appellate court cannot reverse for the alleged error. However, there are some limitations on the operation of the waiver rule. For instance, when the objecting party elicits evidence of the same character either during cross-examination of a witness or in rebuttal testimony, a duly made objection is not waived. The Virginia Supreme Court has never held that the mere cross-examination of a witness or the introduction of rebuttal evidence, either or both, will constitute a waiver of an exception to testimony which has been duly taken. To constitute such a waiver the party objecting to the evidence must have gone further and introduced on his own behalf testimony similar to that which the objection applies.
  • The right to have counsel present during a custodial interrogation is an axiom of American law expressed in Miranda v. Arizona and its progeny. If the individual states that he wants an attorney, the interrogation must cease until an attorney is present. If the interrogation continues without the presence of an attorney and a statement is taken, a heavy burden rests on the government to demonstrate that the defendant knowingly and intelligently waived his privilege against self-incrimination and his right to retained or appointed counsel.

Conviction for abduction with intent to defile under Va. Code Ann. § 18.2-48 was supported by evidence. Abduction-detention and abduction-asportation of victim were factually distinct from restraint in perpetration of rape as defendant forced victim to walk through her house twice, he threw her on bed and sliced her, and he sexually assaulted her.
