Dowson v. Commonwealth

Facts:

Following a jury trial, the Circuit Court of Loudoun (Virginia) convicted defendant of driving under the influence of alcohol (DUI) (second or subsequent offense), in violation of Va. Code Ann. §§ 18.2-266 and 18.2-270(B), and operating a vehicle as an habitual offender, in violation of Va. Code Ann. § 46.2-357. Defendant appealed.

Holdings:

            The Virginia Court made the following holding:

  • The Virginia statute on driving under the influence (DUI), Va. Code Ann. § 18.2-266, makes it unlawful for any person to drive or operate a vehicle while intoxicated. The Virginia habitual offender statute, Va. Code Ann. § 46.2-357(A), makes it unlawful for any person determined or adjudicated an habitual offender to drive any motor vehicle while his license remains revoked. Va. Code Ann. § 46.2-100 defines the terms "operator" and "driver" to include every person who drives or is in actual physical control of a vehicle. This statutory definition applies to the habitual offender statute, and while it does not control Va. Code Ann. § 18.2-266, it serves as a valuable interpretative guide to the DUI statute.
