Loudoun County Prosecutor Terry McAuliffe, who requested jail time for a father arrested after his daughter was sexually assaulted at school’s bathroom.
Loudoun County Commonwealth’s Attorney Buta Biberaj was described in the explosive report by The Daily Wire as the “progressive” elected county prosecutor who ran on a platform of ending “mass incarceration,” but yet she sought jail time for disorderly conduct and resisting arrest, both misdemeanor charges, against Scott Smith.

Smith was taken into custody at a June 22 school board meeting, several weeks after Smith claims that his daughter had been raped in the school’s bathroom by a male student. The student, a 15-year-old boy, was charged in that case with two counts of forcible sodomy and later arrested. The ankle monitor was fitted and he was transferred to Ashburn school, where he was charged with another assault on a female student.
Biberaj told Fox 5 on Friday the decision to transfer the student to a different school came because he didn’t have a prior history of such behavior at the time, and she asked the public to “be patient” and refrain from judgment until “all the facts” in the case come to light.
Meanwhile, Smith’s attorney has announced plans to sue the school district over its handling of the case and his own arrest at the school board meeting. In that case, he was sentenced to 10 day in prison, suspended for a year, and all other terms were subject to his good behaviour.

According to The Daily Wire, Biberaj appeared in court to personally prosecute Smith, despite knowing the details of the case involving his daughter. Smith’s attorney Elizabeth Lancaster told the outlet that she’s known Biberaj for “years” and was shocked when the charges against Smith weren’t dropped.
“The idea that they would actually be seeking jail time, I’d guess in my 15 years the number of times I’ve seen that happen would be zero,” Lancaster said. It was astonishing to me to think that such a person was someone we needed to lock up, given her advocacy for social justice reform. “I was stunned.”
The Daily Wire’s article appears to suggest Biberaj motives for prosecuting the case are political, claiming she is “known for leniency and alternatives to incarceration” in other cases. She came under fire earlier this month for dismissing of hundreds of domestic violence cases after an accused wife-beater out on bond allegedly murdered his wife with a hammer. Washington Free Beacon reports that Virginians for Safe Communities, an advocacy group, is trying to recall Biberaj.
Biberaj did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment.
