Virginia Supreme Court Reversed Gun Possession Conviction

Patrick_Henry_Building_RichmondA recent Virginia Supreme Court case reversed a conviction for gun possession for  the person sitting in the car nearest the glove box where the gun was found. In Carter V. Commonwealth, the Supreme Court found that the defendant’s proximity to the glove box, without any other evidence, was not enough. The Supreme Court ruled that the lower court’s inference that because someone in the car must have known about the gun,  everyone in the car  knew, was without evidentiary support.  “Gun in Glovebox Not Enough to Convict,” Deborah Elkins, “Virginia Lawyers Weekly,”  August 21, 2017.
