LOUDON COUNTY, VA – In May of this year, a female student was sexually assaulted by a boy in a skirt in a “gender neutral” bathroom at Stone Bridge High School. The boy was charged with “two counts of forcible sodomy, one count of anal sodomy, and one count of forcible fellatio” against the freshman victim, according to the family’s attorney, Elizabeth Lancaster.
The school board opted to handle the incident “in-house,” rather than calling the police, but the victim’s father, Scott Smith, called to report the incident. The suspect, who was allegedly on house arrest, or at least that’s what the school told Smith, was transferred to another school where, last week, he sexually assaulted another girl after pushing her into an empty classroom.
Smith was arrested during a June 22 school board meeting where hundreds of community members showed up to protest the school district’s transgender policies, called Policy 8040.
Leesburg Elementary School teacher Tanner Cross was banned from school grounds for opposing the transgender policies that were being pushed. Hundreds had signed up to speak against the move, which Cross argued was an infringement on his First Amendment rights.
When Smith mentioned the assault during that meeting, a woman wearing a rainbow t-shirt told him that his daughter was lying about the incident. An argument broke out. The board members asked police to declare the meeting an “unlawful assembly.”
An officer grabbed Smith’s arm, who pulled it away forcefully, and Smith was placed under arrest and escorted out in handcuffs. He was charged with obstruction of justice and disorderly conduct. The meeting was ended abruptly.

The superintendent of the Loudoun County Public Schools, Scott Ziegler, said during the meeting that the outrage against the school’s transgender policy was unwarranted and that they had no record of the offense.
Lancaster, however, said that the suspect, a 15-year-old, was placed on house arrest after Smith was told they would be handling the incident “in-house,” rather than calling the police. When communicating the incident to parents, the school called it “something out of the ordinary,” without, reportedly, disclosing the nature of the events.
The suspect was supposed to have a court hearing on October 14.
The same suspect, after being transferred to another school, was arrested again on October 6 for sexual assault, battery, and abduction after forcing a female student into an empty classroom and touching her sexually.
“Two girls, allegedly sexually assaulted in school, four months apart, by the same person,” The Daily Wire said. “And so far, the only person to be convicted of a crime is the victim’s father.”
“If someone would have sat and listened for thirty seconds to what Scott had to say,” Lancaster later said, “they would have been mortified and heartbroken.”
Smith took his daughter to the hospital to get a rape kit done, where the allegations were confirmed.
Juvenile records are not publicly open for viewing. The suspect is reportedly being held at a juvenile detention facility.
Loudon County has since continued it’s transgender progressivism, passing a decision to “allow transgender students access to school facilities and groups, such as sports teams, that match their gender identities.” The district’s policies also “require teachers to address transgender children by their names and pronouns.”
The Alliance Defending Freedom has filed a lawsuit against the policy.
Cross, a physical education teacher, has since been reinstated and allowed back onto school property.
