Granted Appeal Summary


Case


ROBERT JOHN DODD v. HAROLD CLARKE, DIRECTOR, VIRGINIA DEPARTMENT OF
CORRECTIONS
(Record Number 200091)


From


Circuit Court of Chesterfield County; F.G. Rockwell, III, Judge.


Counsel


Johnathan P. Sheldon (Sheldon & Flood, P.L.C.) for appellant.
Rosemary V. Bourne (Office of the Attorney General) for appellee.


Assignment of Error


The circuit court erred when it denied Dodd’s claim that his Double Jeopardy and Due Process rights under Art. I, §§ 8 & 11 of the Virginia Constitution and the Fifth and Fourteenth Amendments to the United States Constitution were violated when he was tried and convicted on indictments that were identical. The circuit court erred when it denied Dodd’s claim that trial counsel was ineffective under the Virginia Constitution and the Sixth Amendment to the United States Constitution for failing to object to the Double Jeopardy and Due Process violations.
