The superintendent denied that there had been a rape at the school. They then have the father of the victim, Scott Smith arrested when he tried to tell how his daughter has been raped by a transgender girl in a dress.
After the meeting, the school board voted on a package to assure that some boys would have access to the girl’s bathrooms. The perpetrator meanwhile, has been transferred to another school in the district that I assume will still have access to the girl’s bathroom.
The police have now confirmed that the superintendent lied as he did know about the rape. In fact, they are trying to take credit for reporting it to the police. That, of course, is another lie. The school called in Smith and they told him that they would handle the matter in-house. When Smith objected, the school called the police. Smith convinced them not to arrest him and got them to take his daughter for a rape test and that is how the police became aware of the crime.
The police investigated the case for two months and then arrested the accused rapist.
“We can confirm a May 28, 2021 case that involved a thorough 2-month-long investigation that was conducted to determine the facts of the case prior to arrest. This case is still pending court proceedings. The Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office is not able to provide any documents that pertain to a pending case.”
A spokesman for the school said in a statement:
“These incidents were reported immediately to the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office, and LCPS cooperated fully with the investigations. Any information related to student information is confidential under state and federal laws regarding student privacy.”
Nowhere does it say that the school reported it, which they didn’t because they wanted to handle it in-house. To do that they could not get the police involved, but I have no doubt they cooperated with the police, but only after the police became aware of the crime.
In a full statement on Wednesday, LCPS acknowledged the incident but again maintained that the matter was reported to authorities and that the school was prohibited from any further investigation until the criminal probe had concluded. LCPS also appeared to defend transferring the alleged attacker to a different school in the district, noting that it had to follow Title IX procedures for a student accused of sexual assault.
In response to a contentious school board meeting Tuesday night, where parents and other interested parties demanded school board members resign their positions over the alleged coverup, LCPS claimed that school board members were “not given details of disciplinary matters.”
