Holdings:

The Virginia Court made the following holding:
  • The crime of rape requires proof that the defendant engaged in sexual intercourse with the victim. Va. Code Ann. § 18.2-61. A victim’s testimony alone is sufficient to support a finding of penetration and a rape conviction unless it is inherently incredible or so contrary to human experience or usual human behavior as to render it unworthy of belief.
  • When evidence is insufficient to convict, an appellant is entitled to an acquittal because a remand for retrial would violate the Constitution’s prohibition against double jeopardy.
  • When considering the sufficiency of the evidence presented at trial, a reviewing court presumes a jury verdict to be correct and will not disturb it unless it is plainly wrong or without evidence to support it. The credibility of the witnesses, the weight accorded testimony, and the inferences drawn from proven facts are matters to be determined by the fact finder.
