Facts:

Holdings:

            The Virginia Court made the following holding:

  • Va. Code Ann. § 19.2-294 states that if a defendant is charged with driving under the influence of intoxicants and with reckless driving and he is convicted of one of those charges, then the court shall dismiss the remaining charge. The purpose of § 19.2-294 is to prevent the conviction of two different class one misdemeanors arising out of the same driving acts, when one of the misdemeanors is driving under the influence of intoxicants and the other is reckless driving. Where the evidence supports prosecution under either of two parallel statutes, the Commonwealth has the right to elect under which statute to proceed.
  • Under Va. Code Ann. § 16.1-69.40:1, it is not possible for a defendant to prepay the fine for a reckless driving charge as it is expressly forbidden by Va. Code Ann. § 16.1-69.40:1(d).
