One 15-year-old teenager was the center of the controversy about transgender school bathroom accommodation in Loudoun County, Virginia. He was declared guilty this Monday of sexually assaulting a girl in the female bathroom this May! It’s a decision that will grasp the public’s attention.
“I found the facts sufficient to support the charges,” ruled Juvenile and Domestic Relations District Court Chief Judge Pamela Brooks after the hearing that lasted two hours.

The teenager has been charged with one felony count of forcible sodomy and another felony count of forcible fellatio.
The victim stated that they were friends and the girls said that she had “hooked up with him” — engaged in sexual acts — two times in the weeks before the attack.
On May 28, when he was 14 years old, the Boy texted the girl if she would like them to meet in the girls’ bathroom.
The Washington Post stated that the girl told the court that the Boy threw her to the floor and raped her when she got there.
She reported the assault to the school and talked to the investigators. The defense argued that the encounter was consensual and emphasized that the girl didn’t tell the previous meetings to the investigators.
Nevertheless, the girl didn’t permit the May 28 event.
“He flipped me over,” the victim told the court, according to the Post. “I was on the ground and couldn’t move, and he sexually assaulted me.”
Because the girl’s father, Scott Smith, was arrested on June 22 after progressive activists called his daughter a liar, the event ignited a firestorm over transgender policy.
The Boy wore a skirt on the day of the attack.
When Scott spoke publicly at the school board, the deputy grabbed Smith’s shoulder, and he pulled away, immediately he was arrested.
On the one hand, we have that controversy. Still, the case became a flashpoint over new Virginia Department of Education transgender policies requiting, “Access to facilities such as restrooms and locker rooms that correspond to a student’s gender identity shall be available to all students.”
“All students are entitled to have access to restrooms, locker rooms, and changing facilities that are sanitary, safe, and adequate so that they can comfortably and fully engage in their school programs and activities. Schools frequently maintain separate restrooms, locker rooms, or other facilities for males and females,” the policy states.
“Students should be allowed to use the facility that corresponds to their consistently asserted gender identity. While some transgender students will want that access, others may want alternatives that afford more privacy.
Taking into account existing school facilities, administrators should take steps to designate gender-inclusive or single-user restrooms commensurate with the size of the school.”
Loudoun Country issued a similar policy, but it wasn’t in place at the time of the assault. A family statement said that the district “formalized the policy regarding restroom use that was easily exploitable by a potential sexual assailant.”
The Smiths stated that the attacked classified himself as gender-fluid. However, the mainstream media didn’t confirm this and referred to him as male.
“The defendant did not testify during the trial, but prosecutors played interviews he gave detectives investigating the case during which he acknowledged ‘messing up’ and said he did not intend to perform one sex act with the victim and said he stopped once he realized he was hurting the girl,” The Washington Post reported.
“The defendant initially told detectives the second sexual act did not occur, but later said it may have happened briefly and accidentally when a knee-length skirt he was wearing got caught on his watch as the pair were fumbling around in the bathroom stall.”
If you thought this ends here, you’re fooling yourself. The Boy, now 15, is accused of assaulting a girl in a different school on October 6, where he was monitored. The hearing will determine if the Boy is guilty, and it is scheduled for November 15.
On October 15, WTOP reported that Scott Ziegler, the superintended, stated that while the school system “complied with our obligations” under Title IX regarding the sexual assault of students, the district’s processes weren’t enough.
Bill Stanley, a Republican state senator and an attorney for the Smith family, hailed the court’s judgment.
“We are greatly relieved that justice was served today,” he said, according to WTOP. “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.”
The family sues the school district, stating that they “stand 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.”
Parents who vent their anger at the school board meeting will end up like Scott Smith did, behind bars.
