The father of a schoolgirl who was raped by a 15-year-old boy in a skirt in the school bathrooms has told of his relief at the boy being sentenced – and his anger at being convicted of disorderly conduct when he erupted in fury at a school board meeting.
Scott Smith’s daughter was attacked at Stone Bridge High School in Ashburn, Virginia, in May 2021.
A month later, the school board of Loudoun County held a meeting, during which it was stated that gender-fluid bathrooms were not problematic. Smith reacted with fury, in scenes that went viral, and was charged with disorderly conduct and resisting arrest.
On Wednesday the boy that attacked his daughter was sentenced to a ‘locked residential program’ and ordered to register as a sex offender. He pleaded no contest to two counts of forcible sodomy.
Smith told Fox News host Tucker Carlson that he was relieved – but that there were further legal issues ahead.
‘Man, we’re relieved,’ said Smith.
‘We’re able to put one felony assault behind us, and start the next one next week.’

Asked what he meant, the 48-year-old plumber told Carlson: ‘Well, unfortunately, our daughter was physically assaulted the first week of school when she returned this year, and that one was mishandled as well.
On June 22, Scott Smith was dragged out of a Loudoun County school board meeting after listening to the woke school board justify its transgender bathroom policies. He says he was trying to tell the room that his daughter had been raped by a boy ‘wearing a skirt’ in the girls’ bathroom just weeks earlier and that the school ignored it
‘Ninety days later we finally got charges. That court case starts next week. It’s a felony malicious wounding case.’
Smith said that he was also troubled by his own conviction.
Buta Biberaj, the Loudoun County Commonwealth’s Attorney, pushed to have Smith jailed for his outburst – despite her own progressive stance on avoiding incarcerating convicted criminals where possible.
Biberaj appeared in court to personally prosecute Smith, despite knowing that the details of the case involved his daughter.
Smith’s attorney said she was shocked when the charges weren’t dropped.
‘I was found guilty on two misdemeanor charges,’ Smith told Carlson.
‘One resisting arrest, one, disorderly conduct.
‘She asked for 10 days in jail per charge, eight suspended per charge. $2,500 fine per charge. Anger management, probation, and my attorney was able to tell the judge that that was ridiculous.
‘He found me guilty on both charges. I got 10 days in jail. Suspended upon one year of good behavior.
‘So they basically kind of have me pinned in a corner.
‘That’s where I’m at with that.’
Carlson called the case ‘disturbing’.
After attacking Smith’s daughter, the boy was transferred to another school where, in October, he dragged another girl into an empty classroom and touched her breasts.

The 15-year-old was formerly a student Stone Bridge High School where he was accused of raping a female classmate in the girl’s bathroom in May
The case became the searing tip of a raging debate in Loudoun County over transgender students’ rights and parents’ freedom of speech
Scott Smith, the father of the first female victim, was pictured with a bloody mouth, being dragged out of a school board meeting on June 22 – a month after the attack – after listening to school officials say no one had been sexually assaulted in the bathrooms when that’s what his daughter had reported the previous month
The boy’s mother said she’s hoping her son gets the help he needs.
‘He’s young, he has a lot of learning to do,’ she told reporters outside the courtroom in November.
‘I hope he’s given the opportunity to do so and prove he can do better and be better.’
In October, the mother of the convicted boy revealed her son doesn’t identify as a female, and that his skirt was a disguise to slip into the girl’s bathroom.
Speaking exclusively with DailyMail.com, the mom, who asked not to be identified for the sake of her underage son, defended his actions as that of a heterosexual, hormonal teen who, in the case of the rape, had consensual sex with the girl twice before.
‘He’s a 15-year-old boy that wanted to have sex in the bathroom, with somebody that was willing,’ she declared, sitting in an empty kitchen in her townhouse in Loudoun County, Virginia.
‘And they’re twisting this just enough to make it a political hot button issue.’

The school board has been routinely accused of pushing an ultra-liberal agenda on kids and parents and silencing those who disagree with them.
The scandal even entered Virginia’s race for governor, giving life to the campaign of Republican gubernatorial candidate Glenn Youngkin who accused the Loudon school board of a coverup while warning, ‘What tragedy next awaits our children?’
Despite his androgynous style and declaration that he’s ‘pansexual,’ the boy’s mother insisted he isn’t the gender fluid boogeyman in a culture war about transgender policies.
‘He would wear a skirt one day and then the next day, he would wear jeans and a t-shirt, a Polo or hoodie,’ she explained.
‘He was trying to find himself and that involved all kinds of styles. I believe he was doing it because it gave him attention he desperately needed and sought.’
At the same time, she concedes her son is deeply troubled, acknowledging his extensive history of misbehavior that included sending nude photos of himself to a girl in fifth grade.
She reached her own breaking point with the him in early October when he phoned her from the juvenile detention center following his second arrest.
‘He asked me how I was doing, and I said, ”I’m broken, I’m shattered, you shattered me,” the mom recalled. ”Do you have any idea what you’ve done to me, what you’ve done to your family?
‘And his response was, ”No, what did I do?” she said.
She had been his primary point of contact, with his dad living in New Jersey.
‘At that point, I was like, ‘You know what? I love you, I always will, I will do everything I can to always be there for you in any capacity possible,’ she said.
‘But I told him – ‘You need to call your father for now on. Do not call me. I need to heal, and I need you to figure this out for yourself.’
She said the politics surrounding the case has gotten out of hand.
‘What are they trying to do?’ she asked. ‘Did they hire an investigator to dig up everything and ruin him for the rest of his life?’
The mother made no secret of the fact her son had been repeatedly suspended for misbehavior, including fist fights with classmates.
‘He’s been a challenging child his whole life, which I’ve dealt with myself,’ the mother said.
‘My son’s gone through multiple forms of counseling and therapy, resources here, at school, friends, family. It’s been 15 years of hell trying to get him to do better and be better.’
