Telling his side of the story publicly for the first time, Smith told the Daily Wire that he had been provoked by the woman, who said she did not believe his daughter, and by Loudoun County school officials who had covered up the alleged sexual assault.
The Daily Wire reported that while juvenile court records are sealed, Smith’s attorney, Elizabeth Lancaster, said a boy at Stone Bridge High School was charged with two counts of forcible sodomy, one count of anal sodomy, and one count of forcible fellatio related to an incident on May 28, when Smith says his 15-year-old daughter was attacked in a school bathroom.
Smith says that the boy wore a skirt when he entered the girls’ bathroom and allegedly attacked his daughter.
After the alleged attack, the administration called Smith to come to the school and told him it would handle the incident “in-house.” When he began to make a scene, as any outraged parent would, he says the school called police officers on him and it was only after he managed to avoid getting arrested that he convinced police to escort his daughter to the hospital to have a rape kit administered.
A records request from the Daily Wire confirmed that a report titled “Offense: Forcible Sodomy [and] Sexual Battery” was filed matching the date and location of the alleged assault.
Later that day, the school principle sent an email to the community informing them of “an incident in the main office” that required a police presence. “There was no threat to the safety of the student body,” the principal wrote. He offered counseling services for any student who was upset by Smith’s behavior but made no mention of the alleged assault.
“LCPS washed their hands of this,” Smith told the Daily Wire, adding that the incident was only taken seriously because of the sheriff’s office.
