Court finds Loudoun County student guilty of sexually assaulting girl in school bathroom

The controversy in Loudoun County, Virginia involving a sexual assault case in a school bathroom took a wild turn this week, as a judge found the male student guilty of the alleged sexual assault incident in a Stone Bridge High School bathroom, according to Fox5DC

The Daily Wire — the outlet that broke the story last month — reported Tuesday that the court found sufficient evidence to conclude that the boy, who was reportedly wearing a skirt at the time of the assault, had engaged in “nonconsensual sex” with the female victim.

The father of the underage female victim, Scott Smith, said in a statement that he plans on filing suit against the school system for not protecting his daughter.

It should be noted that Smith was the father who made headlines last month after bringing the issue to light at a school board meeting, at which administrators denied knowledge of such an incident, and resulted in Smith being arrested.

However, justice prevailed, and the entire Smith family was quickly vindicated after the revelation of the judge’s findings.

“No one should have to endure what this family has endured, and now their focus is completely upon their daughter’s health and safety as she progresses forward with her life,” a statement from Smith’s attorney read. “The Smith’s daughter is a survivor, and a fighter, and we are confident that she will grow even stronger with each passing day.”

The statement added: The Smith family stands stronger than ever in moving forward to ensure that those responsible in the Loudoun County School system are held accountable, so that this may never happen again to anyone else’s child.”

The boy involved in the sexual assault, who hasn’t been identified due to his status as a minor, faces yet another hearing for a separate, but similar incident that took place at another school.
