Holdings:

The Virginia Court made the following holding:
  • Sexual battery is the intentional touching of the intimate parts of the complaining witness by the accused with the intent to sexually molest, arouse, or gratify either the complaining witness or the accused. Va. Code Ann. §§ 18.2-67.3, 18.2-67.10(6)(a). While aggravated sexual battery is different from attempted rape in that an intent to have sexual intercourse is not required, aggravated sexual battery is markedly similar to attempted rape where the victim is female and her genitalia is touched by the perpetrator’s penis. Moreover, logic dictates that the reasons that support the rule that a conviction for attempted rape may be supported solely upon the testimony of the victim without further corroboration are equally applicable to prosecutions for aggravated sexual battery under Va. Code Ann. § 18.2-67.3. Accordingly, there is no requirement for corroboration under § 18.2-67.3.
