Miller v. Commonwealth

Facts:

On appeal, defendant argued the trial court of Henrico erred by imposing a punitive fine and an excessive license suspension because it could not impose a jail sentence where the Commonwealth tried him in his absence. The Commonwealth initially conceded defendant’s license could not have been suspended for more than six months under Va. Code Ann. § 46.2-393 and requested the appellate court to vacate the excess portion of the suspension
