Holdings:

The Virginia Court made the following holding:

  • The double jeopardy clause insures that an accused is not subject for the same offense to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb. U.S. Const. amend. V. This constitutional guarantee is applicable to the States through the due process clause of U.S. Const. amend. XIV.
  • Although the language of Va. Code § 19.2-294 does not state that it provides a defense of former jeopardy, it amounts to such a defense in purpose and desired effect. Like the bar of former jeopardy under U.S. Const. amend. V, § 19.2-294 prevents the Commonwealth from subjecting an accused to the hazards of vexatious, multiple prosecutions.
