Williams J v. Commonwealth

Facts:

Defendant was charged with felony domestic assault after his wife accused him of assault and police learned that he had two prior convictions for domestic assault. During defendant’s trial, his wife identified defendant by name and the Commonwealth introduced certified copies of two domestic assault conviction orders entered by another circuit court which bore defendant’s name, birth date, and social security number. Defendant objected when the Commonwealth offered the orders as evidence, but the trial court overruled his objections, found that he was the person named in the orders, and convicted him of felony domestic assault in violation of Va. Code Ann. § 18.2-57.2.

  • In ruling on the sufficiency of the evidence, the relevant question is whether, after viewing the evidence in the light most favorable to the prosecution, any rational trier of fact could have found the essential elements of the crime beyond a reasonable doubt.
  • The identity of names presumption is a presumption in the sense that it is a permissible inference. A fact finder is not required to draw the inference. Whether to draw the inference, and if drawn, the strength to accord it will vary according to the particular circumstances of the case.
