Will v. Commonwealth

Facts:

Defendant appealed the judgment from the Circuit Court of Fairfax (Virginia), which convicted him in a bench trial of driving under the influence (DUI), second or subsequent offense, in violation of Va. Code Ann. § 18.2-266 and denied his motion to suspend the suspension of his operator's license pending appeal.

Holdings:

The Virginia Court made the following holding:

  • The revocation of a privilege voluntarily granted is an act which is characteristically free of the punitive criminal element. The operation of a motor vehicle is a conditional privilege, which may be suspended or revoked under the police power. It is not a contract or property right in a constitutional sense. As such, driver's license suspensions historically have not been considered punishment in Virginia .
  • For a second Driving Under the Influence (DUI) conviction under Va. Code Ann. § 18.2-266, Va. Code Ann. § 18.2-271 requires that such conviction shall of itself operate to deprive the person so convicted of the privilege to drive or operate a motor vehicle in the Commonwealth for a period of three years from the date of the judgment or conviction. The Supreme Court of Virginia has interpreted this language as "self-executing."
