- Scott Smith, a 48-year-old plumber from Virginia, was arrested on June 22
- He had been protesting at a Loudoun County School Board meeting
- Smith was dragged out of the room before he could share his point – he says his daughter was sexually assaulted on May 28 by a boy in the girls’ bathroom
- He wanted to use what happened to her to illustrate why he thinks kids shouldn’t be able to pick which gender bathrooms they use
- But he was dragged out before he could and has since been vilified for his views
- The incident happened at Stone Bridge High School on May 28
- He tells The Daily Wire that the boy ‘sometimes wears a skirt’ and had started using the female bathroom
- The school told Smith his daughter had been assaulted but didn’t call police
- In the end he did, and the boy was charged with multiple counts of sodomy two months after the incident – after the school board meeting

- Smith says they were lying, and that he ‘exploded with rage’
A Virginia father who went viral after being dragged out of a Loudoun County school board meeting and arrested for protesting its proposed transgender policies has now revealed he was trying to tell the room that his daughter had been raped by a boy at school in the girls’ bathroom.
Scott Smith was photographed on June 22, being dragged out of the heated meeting with his torso exposed in Leesburg, Virginia. The 48-year-old plumber was ridiculed on social media afterward and was painted by the left to be a deranged, right-wing bigot.
But in an interview with The Daily Wire published on Monday, he explains that he was trying to stick up for his daughter, who was attacked at Stone Bridge High School on May 28 by a boy’ wearing in a skirt.’
Smith says the boy took advantage of the school’s trans policies to get into the girls’ bathrooms and assault her.
Two months after the incident, the boy – who has not been named because he is a juvenile – was arrested for forced sodomy.
And in October, he was arrested again on different charges for allegedly assaulting another girl at a different school. He is now in a juvenile detention center.
But Smith says Loudoun County schools went out of their way to protect the child – ‘a sexual predator’. The school still has not commented.
‘It has been so hard to keep my mouth shut and wait this out. It has been the most powerless thing I’ve ever been through,’ he said.
‘My wife and I are gay- and lesbian-friendly.
‘We’re not into this children’s transgender stuff. The person that attacked our daughter is bisexual and occasionally wears dresses because he likes them.
‘So this kid is technically not what the school board was fighting about.
‘The point is kids are using it as an advantage to get into the bathrooms,’ he said.
On the day of the incident, Smith says the school told him to come to the campus because his daughter had been physically assaulted. They did not say she had been sexually assaulted.
Once he got there, he says school staff told him they would handle it internally, choosing not to call the police for an as-yet unexplained reason.
He was enraged by the decision and challenged them on it. The school board then called the police but reported Smith, not the boy, for making a scene.
‘I went nuts. I called the principal a p****. Six cop cars showed up like a f****** SWAT team,’ he said.
The school’s principal sent out an alert that day warning parents of what had happened involving Smith, but it said nothing of the sexual assault allegations in the bathroom.
It’s unclear precisely what happened next, but Smith ended up at the hospital with his daughter.
There, they told doctors what happened, and a rape kit was performed.
‘Thank God that I drew enough attention to it, without getting arrested, that we got an escort to the hospital, and they administered a rape kit that night,’ he said.
The rape kit verified his daughter’s claim, so they took it to the police, opening a case.
After the school board meeting, the teenager was arrested two months later after an investigation by the sheriff’s office.
‘We did respond. At the time, the juvenile was 14-years-old. He was charged with forcible sodomy. After that, it goes through the courts.
‘The May 28, 2021, case at Stone Bridge High School involved a different set of circumstances, and a thorough 2-month-long investigation was conducted to determine the facts of the patient before arrest.
‘This case is still pending court proceedings,’ a spokesman for the sheriff’s office told DailyMail.com on Tuesday.
In the weeks and months that followed, Lancaster and the juvenile boy’s attorneys’ were working out a plea deal, but it’s unclear if the school board ever took action against him.
According to Lancaster, the boy confessed to what happened in police interviews.
Lancaster, a partner at the Leesburg firm Whitbeck Bennett, says she accompanied Smith’s daughter to interviews with prosecutors.
At the meeting on June 22, Loudoun County School Superintendent Scott Ziegler said the school had never had any incident inside a bathroom or locker room involving a transgender child.
‘To my knowledge, we don’t have any record of assaults occurring in our restrooms,’ he said first.
He went on to quote Time magazine research that he said disproved the notion transgender kids might sexually attack cisgender kids, and said: ‘I think it’s important to keep our perspective on this, we’ve heard it several times tonight from our public speakers, but the predator transgender student or a person simply does not exist.’
Smith said he became irate. He started arguing with another woman at the meeting, labeling her a ‘b***h’ after she allegedly denied his daughter’s claim.
He was then charged with disorderly conduct and resisting arrest.
The family then retreated from the public eye but were working with Lancaster to resolve the criminal case against the boy who assaulted their daughter, they say.
They were preparing for an October 14 court date but were stunned when the same boy was arrested again on October 6 at a different school in the same district.
On this occasion, he was charged with ‘sexual battery and abduction.’ In that case, he allegedly held a different girl in a classroom to attack her in Broad Run High School – 2.5miles from the high school where Smith’s daughter was assaulted.
Smith’s attorney says prosecutors told her it was the same child involved in the case with Smith’s daughter.
‘If someone had sat and listened for thirty seconds to what Scott had to say, they would have been mortified and heartbroken,’ his attorney added.
He said he does not know if the boy identifies as female, is bisexual, or was taking advantage of the system.
‘I don’t care if he’s homosexual, heterosexual, bisexual, transsexual. He’s a sexual predator,’ he said.
Because the case involves two juveniles, there are few publicly available records, and Loudoun County will not comment or give out any information.
When contacted by DailyMail.com on Tuesday morning to respond to Smith’s explosive allegations, the school board did not immediately respond.
Lancaster, Smith’s attorney, did not name the prosecutors she said she was working with, and sheriff’s deputies will not comment.
It remains unclear why the boy in question was in a different school. The second assault allegedly took place on October 6, when he had been in talks with prosecutors to agree to a deal for the May 28 assault against Smith’s daughter.
Loudoun County won’t say whether or not he was ever suspended or excluded from the school system.
The Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office did confirm the October 6 incident, saying in a press release on October 7: ‘A teenager from Ashburn has been charged with sexual battery and abduction of a fellow student at Broad Run High School.
‘The investigation determined on the afternoon of October 6, the 15-year-old suspect forced the victim into an empty classroom where he held her against her will and inappropriately touched her.’
Loudoun County has become a microcosm for the issues tearing parents and teachers all over America apart.
The school board has been repeatedly accused of ignoring parents’ concerns and vilifying anyone who challenges their view.
Teachers have quit in outrage over the proposed changes, and they say the school board is trying to force CRT and transgender issues onto the kids.
It is a snapshot of what is happening all over the country.
Last week, Florida mother Quisha King called for a mass exodus of kids from the public school system because of how ‘pervasive’ CRT had become.
Many parents were stunned by a Justice Department announced last week that the FBI would now investigate and prosecute any parent who it deems to be ‘threatening’ towards school staff.
The order from Attorney General Merrick Garland responded to a request from the National School Board Association to President Biden, asking him to protect them from angry parents.
Maud Maron, a ‘life-long liberal,’ mother-of-four, and former NYC public defender, is among those who say it is going too far.
Writing for Bari Weiss’ substack channel Common Sense on Monday, she said: ‘I am a mother of four, a criminal defense attorney and a lifelong liberal who is deeply concerned about the direction of New York City’s public schools. I’ve been outspoken about my views, along with an untold number of frustrated parents.
‘For that, the FBI is considering using the PATRIOT Act against me. ‘

Notes from the Editor
I, as a parent am thankful I don’t have a daughter in such a position; if I did, I am a firm believer that you allow the school board and police to handle this. But, and I put this down with great emphasis, if they did not address this, then G-d help the child that raped mine, for if the authorities did not set out justice, I would seek to impart my justice.
