Sec. 25-102. Additional fine and jail sentence for fourth conviction of certain offenses.
If any person, having been convicted three (3) times of any offense or offenses set forth below, within a period of ten (10) years, be again convicted of any one (1) of such offenses within such ten (10) year period, he shall, in addition to the penalty otherwise prescribed by law for such offense, be deemed guilty of a class 1 misdemeanor. The offenses, for a fourth conviction of which such penalties may be imposed, are the following: Violations within Virginia of sections 18.1-54, 46.1-176, 46.1-191, 46.1-350, or of any similar ordinance of any county, city or town in Virginia, and manslaughter involving the operation of a motor vehicle, voluntary or involuntary. Provided, however, that for the purposes of this section where more than one (1) manslaughter conviction results from a single act or omission, then only the first such conviction shall constitute an offense.
