Holdings:

The Virginia Court made the following holding:
  • In Virginia, when misdemeanor charges are initiated by warrant and a defendant is convicted of those charges in district court, he may appeal to the circuit court for a trial de novo. A trial on the same charges in the circuit court does not violate double jeopardy principles, subject only to the limitation that conviction in the district court for an offense lesser included in the one charged constitutes an acquittal of the greater offense, permitting trial de novo in the circuit court only for the lesser-included offense.
