 Issiah v. Commonwealth

Facts:

Appellant appealed from a judgment of the trial court, Virginia, which convicted him of possession with intent to distribute marijuana, in violation of Va. Code Ann. § 18.2-248.1.  Appellant contended that the evidence was insufficient to prove he possessed marijuana found in the locked glove compartment of the vehicle he was driving, but did not own.  Appellant also contended that the evidence was insufficient to prove he had the requisite intent to distribute the marijuana.

Holdings:

The Virginia Court made the following holding:
  • To sustain a conviction for possession of marijuana, the Commonwealth is required to prove that appellant intentionally and consciously possessed the marijuana, either actually or constructively, with knowledge of its nature and character. Constructive possession can be shown by acts, statements, or conduct of the accused or other facts or circumstances which tend to show that the accused was aware of both the presence and character of the substance and that it was subject to his dominion and control.
