Holdings:
The Virginia Court made the following holding:
  • Robbery is a common law crime in Virginia. It is defined as the taking, with intent to steal, of the personal property of another, from his person or in his presence, against his will, by violence or intimidation. The element of violence need only be slight. Anything which calls out resistance is sufficient.
  • When a single act violates two separate criminal statutory provisions, convictions for both crimes will not offend the constitutional guarantees against double jeopardy if each crime requires proof of an element that the other does not.
