Abduction conviction reversed

In Hoyt v. Com., the Virginia Court of Appeals in an opinion by Judge Annunziata joined by Chief Judge Fitzpatrick and Judge Elder reversed the defendant's abduction conviction, concluding that it was not a separate offense from the robbery charge, where the defendant ordered some people at gunpoint to move around a bit during the few minutes he was in the store he robbed.
