Loudoun sheriff slams school superintendent, says he knew of alleged sexual assault the day it occurred

The sheriff of Loudoun County blasted the county superintendent for allowing a student accused of a highly publicized sexual assault at a local high school to transfer schools despite knowing about the assault the day it occurred. 

Loudoun Sheriff Mike Chapman accused superintendent Scott Ziegler in a letter last month of knowing about the "alleged sexual offense the day it occurred” but nevertheless allowing the student accused of the assault to transfer to another school “despite knowing the serious nature of the offense.”

Chapman’s Nov. 10 letter was the latest in a war of words between Ziegler and Chapman. The superintendent, in a Nov. 5 letter , had accused the sheriff’s office of relaying “inaccurate information” about the assault to the Loudoun board of supervisors during their Nov. 3 meeting. 

The sheriff’s office had told the board that Loudoun public schools had received timely notice about sexual assault charges filed against the student. The sheriff's letter was a response to Ziegler's.
