Booker v. Commonwealth

Facts:

The trial court properly found that defendant hindered a deputy sheriff (who was investigating a domestic violence report in Fairfax) in the performance of his duties because defendant told the sheriff to get out of her house, refused to provide her state-issued identification, provided nonresponsive answers to his repeated requests for information, and refused to provide any assurance that she would remain separate and apart from her father for the remainder of the evening.

Holdings:

The Virginia Court made the following holding:

  • In the context of statutory construction, an undefined term must be given its ordinary meaning, given the context in which it is used.
  • Obstruction of justice does not occur when a person fails to cooperate fully with a police officer or when the person's conduct merely renders the officer's task more difficult but does not impede or prevent the officer from performing that task.
  • In review of a challenge to a criminal conviction, where the issue is whether the evidence is sufficient, appellate courts view the evidence in a light most favorable to the county, granting to it all reasonable inferences fairly deducible therefrom.
