Statement of Loudoun County Commonwealth's Attorney Buta Biberaj Regarding the Report of the Special Grand Jury on the Investigation of Loudoun County Public Schools:
On December 2, 2022, the Loudoun County Circuit Court issued an order directing that the release of the Report of the Special Grand Jury on the Investigation of Loudoun County Public Schools be made public on December 5, 2022.
We appreciate the time and interest the Special Grand Jury dedicated to this tragic event that was the cause of considerable harm to the victims.
As the Special Grand Jury determined, the information shared was at times sparse, incomplete, or untimely. These limitations are detrimental to the expediency of the administration of justice. The lesson that we should take away is that we can’t continue to operate in silos when the safety of our children, or anyone in the community, is at stake.
We invite all the involved entities to come together and move forward towards developing comprehensive responses to such matters. We stand ready and willing to work with our community partners to establish a “formalized protocol emphasizing better communication” as recommended by the Grand Jury.
