Loudoun County Public Schools Denies Board Knew About Alleged Sexual Assault in School Bathroom

Loudoun County Public Schools Denies Board Knew About Alleged Sexual Assault in School Bathroom

LCPS will not confirm if the same suspect is involved in the alleged sexual assaults on May 28 and October 8.

The Loudoun County Public Schools (LCPS) said the school board did not know about an alleged sexual assault that occurred in the girl’s bathroom at a high school. The schools also would not say if the boy is the same suspect in another alleged assault at another school in October.

The Loudoun Sheriff’s Office released a statement about the October 8 incident on its Facebook page.

The Daily Wire reported on the May 28 incident. But it would have come out earlier if cops didn’t arrest Scott Smith at a June school board meeting. He wanted to publicly accuse the school board of hiding his daughter’s alleged sexual assault.

A source told The Daily Wire the same person committed both crimes.

From The Loudoun Times-Minor:

“LCPS takes student privacy seriously and cannot reveal details concerning the actions of any specific student,” school officials said in the statement. The statement says principals are legally required to report to law enforcement any act that may constitute a felony offense — including sexual assault — under Virginia Code § 22.1-279.3:1. School officials said they followed the reporting law.

“Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office was contacted within minutes of receiving the initial report on May 28,” LCPS officials wrote, referring to the alleged incident at Stone Bridge. “Once a matter has been reported to law enforcement, LCPS does not begin its investigation until law enforcement advises LCPS that it has completed the criminal investigation.”

Parents have lashed out at the school board. LCPS insisted the board did not know about May 28.

The sheriff’s office also explained why it reported the October 8 incident and not May 28:

LCPS officials, in an effort to maintain the student suspect’s due process in the alleged May 28 sexual assault, said school board members were not made aware of the incident until it was reported in the media earlier this week.

In response to an inquiry by the Times-Mirror asking why the Oct. 8 incident was publicly reported while the May 28 incident was not, a sheriff’s office spokesperson wrote in an email that the two cases were fundamentally different.

“The May 28, 2021 case involved a different set of circumstances and a thorough 2-month-long investigation was conducted to determine the facts of the case prior to arrest,” the spokesperson wrote. “This case is still pending court proceedings.”

The spokesperson added that “Juvenile reports are excluded from disclosure pursuant to Virginia Code §16.1-301 and Criminal history information is exempt under Virginia Code §19.2-389.”

Unfortunately nothing will come of this. The father will be lucky if he does not spend several years in a Federal pen for “domestic terrorism” or “insurrection” or whatever the hell they can pin on him. And the perp and his enablers in the school administration and school board will be portrayed as “victims” by the Joseph Goebbels media.

Doesn’t sound right. Obviously his testimony would be have been most important. And his daughter was called a liar without consequence. I say the Board knew of the incident and was trying to cover it up so as to keep in place its crazy policy.

    Of course they knew. It is inconceivable that a child was raped and the police were involved, but the board wasn’t informed.

      Inconceivable. Unless the vice principal, principal, or superintendent didn’t want the board to know.

      Remember, it’s a government bureaucracy.

      The facts have been elusive- 3rd hand…it sounds like the police were not involved until the dad made a rukkus at the meeting.

      NEVER RELY ON THE SCHOOL TO CALL THE POLICE. THIS IS YOUR JOB AS A PARENT. YOUR JOB- NO ONE ELSE.

      I’ve seen a private school (christian) hide the fact that they had a teacher who had been convicted of having child porn. The teacher was getting to be inappropriate with some junior high girls. The parents in question called it out after a bunch of way too personal texts appeared on their kids devices and assumed the school was handling it after they were informed…. they WERE handling it – as in ignoring it. This went on until a local cop whose kids were at the school noticed the behavior first hand and dug in like a tick and wouldn’t let it go. The teacher was eventually fired and the principal resigned. Note this was a conservative christian school. The principal reasoned that giving the teacher a second chance was the christian thing to do. Stupid runs in all flavors of society.

        The odd thing is that teachers/principals are required to report anything that might be abuse. Anything that might be sexual abuse requires us to report within the hour we find out.

          Unlike the rapist in this case, most predators know how to hide under a guise of legitimacy. At the school I mentioned, it was texts which started directly to the student about innocent school related stuff- but then got more frequent. The teacher would have a solo girl in his office with no one else present. Outside he would carry them in a fun way like a sack of flour over his shoulder in the guise of fun. Each thing pushing the envelope a little further. It was the sack of flour thing that caught the cop’s eye. As he dug in he found out about the texts… then (Thank God) he was not letting go of the issue and even uncovered the child porn charge… he kept at it until the teacher was bounced out.

          Andy, I am glad he was caught.

          We are told specifically not to have students on any social media and particularly not to send any text messages to students. Teachers messaging kids is a GIANT red flag.

“… in an effort to maintain the student’s due process … school board members were not made aware of the incident”

This makes no sense. It’s possible to brief the school board on what happened without saying who. And something this important would seem to be the kind of thing they should know. That leaves 2 possibilities:

1. The school board was deliberately kept out of the loop. If this option were true, they’d be screaming bloody murder about it.
2. The school board is covering up their own malfeasance with cheap lies. This option fits the way they are behaving perfectly.

    Concur. The high school put out a public notice to address the sheriff having been called to the school, with an accusation of rape involved, and the board was never notified? Who approved the school’s press release? Nobody from the board followed up on the press release to ask any questions? At a minimum, willful blindness.

    Door # 2.

Liars: The perp was transferred to another school. Bet your ass there’s a paper trail.

    students don’t just magically disappear from one school to appear at another with no documentation within the same district.

      Transfers of what were called Roads Scholars were routine in the NY City public school system, giving the problem to another school, but hopefully some relief for the original victim. Decades before they were sent to “600” schools and the kids in school to learn were free of them. Long after I heard that “600” came from an extra $600 paid to “teachers” in those schools, a decent extra in those days.

The vile Dhimmi-crats’ loudly-professed, self-congratulatory and alleged support of “women’s rights” is so much bunk and hypocrisy, as the Party’s utterly craven, misguided and plain evil enabling of tranny narcissists, sociopaths and sexual assailants, amply demonstrates.

Willard:
Oh man, the sh*t piled up so fast in Vietnam you needed wings to stay above it.

File a notice of intent to sue and put the board, the school admin and any employee with any knowledge on notice to preserve all communication related to this event or discussion of any follow up actions/inactions.

The press release is BS and carefully crafted.

All this couldn’t have happened at a better time for the parents looking to drill several CRT-spewing commies off the school board in Loudoun.

Another school system that needs to be shut down completely. There is no cure for an organization that is this corrupted.

Two months to investigate the May 28 rape? Really? LCSO investigators are worthless.

It doesn’t matter that they didn’t know. Their policy’s blindly enabled the attacker. They are just as guilty as the attacker.
