Davidson v. Commonwealth

Facts:

The Circuit Court of Henrico, Virginia, convicted defendant of grand larceny and denied his motion to set aside the verdict on his contention that the Commonwealth failed to prove that the victim possessed the allegedly stolen property. Defendant appealed.  The appellate court found that the indictment did not provide defendant sufficient notice to adequately prepare to defend the accusations made against him. Amendments to the embezzlement statute changed the law so as to prohibit a conviction for larceny upon an indictment for larceny and proof of embezzlement. The general assembly intended the current version of Va. Code Ann. § 18.2-111 to preclude conviction under an indictment for larceny on proof of embezzlement. Therefore, proof of embezzlement did not support defendant’s conviction under the indictment alleging larceny.

Holdings:

The Virginia Court made the following holding:
  • To prove embezzlement, the Commonwealth must prove defendant wrongfully appropriated to his use or benefit, with the intent to deprive the owner thereof, the property entrusted to him by virtue of his employment or office.
  • Subsequent amendments to the embezzlement statute, Va. Code Ann. § 18.2-111, changed that law so as to prohibit a conviction for larceny upon an indictment for larceny and proof of embezzlement.
