Granted Appeal Summary
JERMICA SHONDAL TAYLOR v. COMMONWEALTH OF VIRGINIA (Record
Number 181684) From The Court of Appeals of Virginia.
Charles E. Haden for appellant. Donald E. Jeffrey, III (Office
of the Attorney General) for appellee.
Assignment of Error
- The Court of Appeals erred in affirming the trial court’s
denial of Taylor’s motion to strike the charge of attempted
identity theft under Va. Code § 18.2-186.3, where the
Commonwealth’s evidence was insufficient as a matter of law to
prove the elements of attempted identity theft, where Jermica
Taylor endorsed her own name on the back side of the check and
never misrepresented her identity to the bank teller while
attempting to cash the check.
