Holdings:

The Virginia Court made the following holding:
  • Generally, the admissibility of evidence is within the discretion of the trial court and the Supreme Court of Virginia will not reject the decision of the trial court unless it finds an abuse of discretion.
  • Application of the best evidence rule is limited to written documents.
  • In seeking to determine whether the material is proscribed by the charges in a child pornography case, a court must look to both the definitional elements provided by the Virginia General Assembly and the case law provided by the Virginia appellate courts.
