Loudoun Sheriff: ‘Multiple Incidents’ of Sexual Misconduct at Middle School

'There are additional male students who were inappropriately touched by the same juvenile...'

Christopher Rufo reported via Twitter that the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office is investigating “multiple incidents of sexual misconduct” at a Loudoun County, Va. middle school.

An announcement posted on the LCSO website says the incidents “occurred at Harmony Middle School this week” and that they involve “a male student touching other students inappropriately over their clothing.”

The school reported one incident to the LCSO on Oct. 27, but detectives have since discovered that “there are additional male students who were inappropriately touched by the same juvenile [which] had not been previously reported to school officials or law enforcement.”

Loudon County schools have been in the news since Scott Smith, a Virginia man whose daughter was sexually assaulted by a transgender student in a Stone Bridge High School bathroom, was charged with disorderly conduct and obstruction of justice during a Loudon County School Board meeting.

The purpose of the meeting was, as the Washington Post reported at the time, to discuss “a draft school policy that would require teachers to address transgender students by their names and pronouns, as well as grant transgender students access to facilities and activities that match their gender identity.”

According to Fox News, Scott became enraged after Loudoun County Public Schools Superintendent Scott Ziegler argued that predatory transgender students “do not exist” and denied knowledge of “assaults occurring in our restrooms.”

The incident was used by the National School Board Association (and perhaps the White House) as an example of “domestic terrorism” in its since-rescinded letter to the US Department of Justice requesting the FBI’s involvement in policing parents at local school board meetings.

Another Fox News report, published Thursday, indicated apparent strife between Superintendent Ziegler and Loudon County Sheriff Mike Chapman regarding both the handling of the June 22 meeting at which Scott was arrested, and “extraordinary” requests for law enforcement assistance at subsequent school board meetings.
