Loving v. Virginia by maddy Powell

(S) The Lovings were a interracial couple who got married in the District of Colombia where it was legal to get married. Soon after they moved back to Virginia but a lot of consequences came with this move back. Virginia charged the couple with violating 20-58 of the Virginia Code.
(S) Police invaded in the Loving's home because they wanted to find them doing other things but they actually found them sleeping but saw a marriage certificate. They then arrested both of them for violating the law against interracial marriage.
(Q) The judge sentenced the Lovings to one year in jail but suspended the sentence on the condition that the couple leave the state immediately and not return as man and wife for a period of 25 years. Having established residence in Washington, D.C., the Lovings filed suit in a Virginia state court in November 1963, seeking to overturn their convictions on the grounds that Sections 20-58 and 20-59 were inconsistent with the Fourteenth Amendment. Paraphrasing
