(Headline USA) A Virginia judge booted the Loudoun County Commonwealth’s Attorney Office from a serial burglary case after determining the leftist attorney was too lenient and “deliberately misled” the public.
The case in question concerns burglary suspect Kevin Enrique Valle, who was charged with three misdemeanors for destruction of property and false identification, and two felonies for burglary.
Loudoun County prosecutor Michele Burton offered Valle a six-month plea deal and downplayed Valle’s previous criminal history, including other burglary charges against him, to do so, according to Judge James Plowman.
“The Commonwealth is deliberately misleading the Court, and the public, in an effort to ‘sell’ the plea agreement for some reason that has yet to be explained,” Plowman wrote in an order removing Burton and the Soros-funded head of the county’s Attorney Office, Buta Biberaj, from the case.
The plea agreement negotiated by the Commonwealth Attorney’s Office stated Valle’s crimes occurred within a matter of hours last year, which Plowman said is “entirely inaccurate” since Valle is accused of “a possible 12 burglary crime spree spanning four counties over 10 days.”
Burton is clearly incapable of prosecuting the case “consistent with professional standards,” he concluded.
“Biberaj and the Loudoun County Commonwealth’s Attorney’s Office is hereby REMOVED AND DISQUALIFIED from further prosecution as counsel of record in this matter,” the judge wrote.
Plowman also recused himself from the case “unless the parties agree otherwise” and ordered the Fauquier Commonwealth’s Attorney’s Office to prosecute the case.
Following Plowman’s order, Virginia Attorney General Jason Miyares sent a letter to the chief judge for the 20th Judicial Circuit expressing interest in prosecuting the case himself “considering this unprecedented development.”
“Please know that my office stands at the ready to ensure that the victims of these serious crimes receive justice, and that the perpetrator is held accountable thereby ensuring that the citizens of Virginia feel safe in their homes,” Miyares wrote.
