Summary as passed: (all summaries)
Burning object on property of another or public place with intent to intimidate; penalty. Creates a new section without amending existing language in the current cross-burning statute to provide that, without any reference to a cross, any person, with the intent of intimidating another, who burns an object (i) on the private property of another, or (ii) on a highway or other public place in a manner having a direct tendency to place another in reasonable fear or apprehension of death or bodily injury is guilty of a Class 6 felony. This is in response to the decision of the Virginia Supreme Court in Black v. Commonwealth, 2001 Va. Lexis 139 (2001), that found Virginia's cross-burning statute unconstitutional under the First Amendment.
