On perjury convictions in Virginia

The Norfolk paper had this interesting article on perjury convictions in Virginia (and elsewhere). The article says that "Between 1997 and 2002, 56 people in South Hampton Roads were charged with the crime, according to statistics from the Virginia Supreme Court," and that "In the nation’s federal courts, only 0.4 percent of 76,952 defendants had perjury, contempt or intimidation listed as their most serious offense in 2000, according to the U.S. Department of Justice."
