Holdings:

The Virginia Court made the following holding:
  • Va. Code Ann. § 18.2-267(A) permits a preliminary breath analysis of a person who is suspected of a violation of Va. Code Ann. § 18.2-266 or Va. Code Ann. § 18.2-266.1. However, another provision of that statute states that the results of the breath analysis shall not be admitted into evidence in any prosecution under § 18.2-266 or § 18.2-266.1, the purpose of this section being to permit a preliminary analysis of the alcoholic content of the blood of a person suspected of having violated the provisions of § 18.2-266 or § 18.2-266.1. Va. Code Ann. § 18.2-267(E).
  • Non-constitutional error is harmless when it plainly appears from the record and the evidence given at the trial that the parties have had a fair trial on the merits and substantial justice has been reached. To determine whether an error is harmless, an appellate court must review the record and the evidence and evaluate the effect the error may have had on how the finder of fact resolved the contested issues. An error does not affect a verdict if a reviewing court can conclude, without usurping the jury’s fact finding function, that, had the error not occurred, the verdict would have been the same. Whether such an error is harmless in a particular case depends upon a host of factors. These factors include the importance of the witness’s testimony in the prosecution’s case, whether the testimony was cumulative, the presence or absence of evidence corroborating or contradicting the testimony of the witness on material points, the extent of cross-examination otherwise permitted, and the overall strength of the prosecution’s case.
