The Court of Appeals of Virginia.
Mark R. Herring, Virginia B. Theisen (Office of the Attorney General) for appellant. Ivan D. Fehrenbach (D.R. Dansby, Ltd.) for appellee.
Assignment of Error
In this case of first impression, the Court of Appeals erred in ruling that convictions for possession of a firearm by a felon and possession by a felon of ammunition incompatible with the firearms with which it was possessed violated the double jeopardy protection against multiple punishments for the same offense.
