Miller v. People

In Miller v. People, 54 V.I. 398 (V.I. 2010), the Court was faced with the question of what statute of limitations should apply to prosecutions brought under section 843(3) of the Virgin Islands Code. To answer that question, the Court was required to determine the elements of a violation of section 843(3), and the Court found that "while section 843(3) requires, as an element, the making of a false statement or representation, the plain language of that section does not require that the making of a false statement or misrepresentation be in writing, much less that it be made in a public record." 54 V.I. at 403.
