Judge Who Was Terrified by the Loudoun County High School Rapist History Suddenly Decides He's No Longer a Sex Offender

Back in June, a father attending a meeting of the Loudoun County School Board was forcibly removed from the meeting by uniformed officers and subsequently charged with an offense (Loudoun County Father Who Was Slandered, Beaten, and Arrested Speaks Out). His crime was attempting to speak out on the forcible rape of his daughter by a skirt-wearing “transgender” student in the girl’s bathroom.

As it turned out, the school board seems to have violated state law (Loudoun County Officials Likely Lied About Knowledge of Sexual Assault in Restroom) regarding reporting requirements for sexual assaults on school grounds. Deciding they hadn’t dug the hole quite deep enough, the school system decided to move Skirty to another school where “she” promptly sexually assaulted yet another classmate.

Eventually, a vague simulacrum of justice appeared to have been served in late October. The case was heard before a juvenile court judge. and Skirty was found guilty (or the juvenile court equivalent of that verdict) of sexual assaults (Breaking: Decision in Horrible Loudoun County Schools Rape Case). The defendant was sentenced to confinement in a residential treatment facility until age 18 and will be on probation for that time. The judge also ordered that Skirty register as a sex offender for the rest of “her” life.

In a sentencing hearing Wednesday, Loudoun County Juvenile Court Chief Judge Pamela L. Brooks told the teen, whose sexual assaults caused a national political firestorm, that she had never placed a youth on the state’s sex offender registry but she was so disturbed by his presentence psychological evaluations that she was taking the unusual step in his case.

Brooks said in the courtroom that she was not going to disclose what was in the evaluations, but said that something in his background had “contributed to where you are.”

“What I read in those reports scared me,” Brooks said. “It scared me for your family. It scared me for society.”

Not adequate, in my view, but at least the criminal could not evade justice because a particular sexual dysfunction is considered trendy and protected by our betters (Washington Post Turns to Victim Shaming of a Minor to Preserve Narrative in Loudoun County School Rape Case).

Then today happened.

On the heels of a juvenile court judge ruling to place the now 15-year-old boy in Loudoun County, Virginia, who sexually assaulted at least two students in high schools on the sex offender registry for life — the ruling has been revoked.

“This court made an error in my initial ruling,” Loudoun County Judge Pamela Brooks said in announcing her decision, as WTOP News reported. “The court is not vain enough to think it’s perfect, but I want to get it right.”

The 15-year-old boy, whose name The Daily Wire has continued to withhold due to his age, was found guilty of two counts of sodomy relating to the incident on May 28, 2021, at Stone Bridge High School, as well as another incident at Broad Run High School on October 6, as The Daily Wire reported. There was also another alleged assault victim, but he was never charged. He is on supervised probation until he turns 18 at a locked juvenile treatment center.

Brooks ruled to drop the boy from the registry in a Thursday hearing. Commonwealth Attorney Buta Biberaj, who said prior that the boy was released from jail due to having no “history” of assault, argued that putting him on the registration was for the community’s safety and wellbeing. Biberaj was elected in 2019 after receiving $850,000 from a political action committee funded by left-wing billionaire George Soros.

“I can’t rest on it being immaturity,” Biberaj said in a discussion about the boy’s status as a minor, requesting he remain on the registry until the age of 30.

The attorneys defending the boy, William Mann, Jonathan Moore, and Caleb Kershner — who sits on the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors — pushed the narrative that the boy was a victim. Kershner said he is the center of “a national media outcry” and that this has resulted in the high level of scrutiny.

“We are setting him up for failure,” Kershner, a Republican, claimed in his closing remarks. “We’ve never concentrated on [the boy] — we’re not even giving this young man a chance.” The board member also said the 15-year-old has been “cheated” by the “failure of the system.”

I hope newly-elected Virginia Attorney General Jason Miyares digs into some very reasonable questions to ask here. Like how, for instance, did Judge Brooks go from proclaiming that the pre-sentencing reports on Skirty were so disturbing that she feared for his family and society to suddenly being “meh, it’s just some sexual assaults”? How did she depart from ordering the defendant to register as a sex offender for the rest of “her” life to deciding “that was just way over the top”? In my view, it is very difficult to achieve either of those things without some sort of outside influence being brought to bear, but maybe she’s just a flake, who knows?

The bottom line here is that the system got what it wanted in the end. A sexual predator operating under the guise of being “gender fluid” is being protected because that is the fashionable thing to do in a place like Loudoun County. Unfortunately, that same system abandoned the young women who were raped and assaulted, and a distraught father is still facing criminal charges for standing up for his daughter.

I’m inclined to believe Judge Brooks’ assessment of the rapist’s pre-sentence report where she found a very, very dangerous predator making his first efforts at attacking vulnerable girls. In this case, what has been accomplished is to teach a sexual predator that there is no real downside to taking what he wants. He won’t forget the lessons that have been taught him.
