Virginia AG-elect vows to investigate Loudoun after sheriff’s letter says school district enabled assault
Virginia Attorney General-elect Jason Miyares vowed to investigate the Loudoun County School Board’s actions surrounding two sexual assault allegations introduced forth within the county.
“We know that two female students were sexually assaulted at Loudoun High Schools,” he tweeted Tuesday. “It is absolutely critical that we find out what the LCSB did and didn’t do. Virginia parents deserve answers. And during my administration, I plan to uncover the truth.”
His feedback got here in response to a letter wherein Loudoun County Sheriff Michael Chapman raised questions in regards to the impartial overview commissioned by the county.
LOUDOUN COUNTY SHERIFF SAYS SCHOOL DISTRICT ENABLED SECOND SEXUAL ASSAULT
“While I believe an independent review would be helpful, I have concerns of the legitimacy of such a review conducted at your direction,” Chapman wrote. “As the Attorney General is accountable to the citizens of Virginia, I feel an Attorney General review is the most objective way to move forward on this issue.”
In his letter, Chapman steered that the school board enabled the second sexual assault.
Chapman’s letter famous that Superintendent Scott Ziegler knew in regards to the May 28 assault at Stone Bridge High School “the day it occurred,” and he famous that Juvenile Intake notified Loudoun County Public Schools (LCPS) of the scholar’s arrest on July 9.
Chapman added, “despite knowing the serious nature of the offense, LCPS decided to place this individual back into [another] high school population” and “the consequences of that decision resulted in a second student being victimized by the same defendant” on Oct. 6 at Broad Run High School.
LCPS didn’t instantly reply to Fox News’ request for remark. Ziegler and Chapman didn’t instantly reply to requests for remark both.
In one other letter, Ziegler steered Chapman could not have correctly notified the school system. In his responding letter, Chapman famous that the Code of Virginia requires regulation enforcement to report “offenses” and never “arrests.”
“This offense was reported to the LCPS the day it occurred as evidenced by your email on May 28, 2021,” Chapman wrote, referencing a letter wherein Ziegler notified the school board in regards to the incident.
