Stewart v. Commonwealth

Facts:

The Circuit Court convicted defendant of driving while having the status of an habitual offender. Defendant appealed. Defendant contended the trial judge rendered impermissible, inconsistent verdicts by convicting him of a felony after acquitting him of violating Va. Code Ann. § 18.2-266, which was an element of the felony offense. The State responded that the record established the judge did not reject the evidence of driving under the influence and that he gave an explanation, which established that the verdicts were not truly inconsistent. The court of appeals agreed with the State.
