A father who was arrested at a heated Loudoun County, Virginia school board meeting has accused school administrators of trying to cover up his daughter’s sexual assault in a gender-neutral bathroom on school grounds.
Scott Smith’s arrest went viral and became one of the prime examples cited by the National School Board Association when they called on the Biden administration to deploy the FBI to address “threats” posed to teachers and board members as such protests have increased over the last year, as The Post Millennial notes.

“If someone would have sat and listened for thirty seconds to what Scott had to say, they would have been mortified and heartbroken,” Smith’s attorney, Elizabeth Lancaster, told The Daily Wire.
According to Lancaster, Smith’s ninth-grade daughter was in a women’s bathroom when a male student wearing a skirt entered and sexually assaulted her.
The assailant was charged with “two counts of forcible sodomy, one count of anal sodomy, and one count of forcible fellatio” and placed on house arrest.
According to The Daily Wire, just moments before Scott’s arrest at a school board meeting in June, the superintendent of Loudoun County Public Schools (LCPS) told members of the community that the parents’ outrage was unjustified as there had been no record of transgender students committing assault on campus.
What’s more, the 15-year-old transgender student who was supposedly being held accountable for what he has been accused of doing to Smith’s daughter assaulted another female student on October 6, just days before he was set to stand trial for his previous alleged offense.
Loudoun County has received much of the nation’s media coverage on school board protests over its much-contested transgender policies.
This story is an explosive addition to an already emotionally heated debate.
