Holdings:

The Virginia Court made the following holding:
  • Va. Code § 18.2-434 provides in part: If any person to whom an oath is lawfully administered on any occasion willfully swear falsely on such occasion touching any material matter or thing, he shall be guilty of perjury.
  • In a prosecution under Va. Code § 18.2-434, the Commonwealth of Virginia must prove beyond a reasonable doubt, inter alia, that defendant willfully swore falsely. If the defendant believes the facts stated by him to be true, he may not properly be said to have willfully sworn falsely to such facts.
  • If the untrue representation does not touch any material matter or thing in the trial, Va. Code § 18.2-434, the mere falsity of the statement alone will not sustain a perjury conviction. The testimony must have been relevant in the trial of the case, either to the main issue or some collateral issue.
