Row v. Commonwealth

Facts:

The evidence was not sufficient to support defendant's conviction in Fairfax for aggravated sexual battery, in violation of Va. Code Ann. § 18.2-67.3, because testimony from defendant's daughter did not slightly corroborate the corpus delicti of the offense involving defendant's extrajudicial confession to inappropriate sexual behavior with his grandson

Holdings:

The Virginia Court made the following holding:

  • When reviewing a defendant's challenge to the sufficiency of the evidence to sustain a conviction, the Supreme Court of Virginia reviews the evidence in the light most favorable to the Commonwealth, as the prevailing party at trial, and considers all inferences fairly deducible from that evidence. The lower court will be reversed only if that court's judgment is plainly wrong or without evidence to support it.
  • To the extent that circumstantial evidence establishes a defendant's mere opportunity to commit the corpus delicti, this is insufficient to provide slight corroboration. The Commonwealth must go further and present evidence of such circumstances as will, when taken in connection with the confession, establish the occurrence of the corpus delicti beyond a reasonable doubt.
