LOUDOUN COUNTY, VA — The mother of the convicted teen rapist in Loudoun County has denied her son is transgender and insisted he did not sexually assault anyone.
In an exclusive interview with Daily Mail, the unnamed mother defended her unnamed 15-year-old son, saying he did not rape his victim.
Instead, she blamed his male hormones and said the sex between her son and the victim was consensual.
Saw someone post the "original" Daily Mail story which they quickly deleted. It contained this picture.— Heather Hear (@heather_hear) November 3, 2021
Their "new" version of original article removed picture and changed a few things. Wonder about the reasoning behind changes.

The boy, who is not named due to his juvenile status, was found guilty on Oct. 25 of sexual assaulting a 15-year-old girl inside a bathroom stall for females at Stone Bridge High School. The attack occurred on May 28, and he was dressed in a skirt at the time of the attack.
Loudoun County juvenile court Chief Judge Pamela Brooks found sufficient evidence during an Oct. 25 trial to sustain charges of forcible sodomy and forcible fellatio on a 15-year-old classmate, according to New York Post’s report.
Following the May attack, the boy had been transferred to Broad Run High School, which is also located in Loudoun County. The boy is accused of sexually assaulting another 15-year-old girl at the new school on Oct. 6.
In the latest incident, the boy allegedly pulled a girl into a classroom and inappropriately touched her.
The boy is due back in court on charges for the alleged sex attack in October and will be sentenced for the May attack after that, according to New York Post.

"Given that, even now, she tries to absolve him of blame, it's not hard to see how he ended up the way he did."https://t.co/7Gbk2mAtcX
In Daily Mail’s interview, the mother, who asked not to be identified for the sake of her underage son, spoke with the news outlet from her townhouse in Loudoun County.
She defended her son and told Daily Mail that her son is not transgender:
“First of all, he is not transgender. And I think this is all doing an extreme disservice to those students who actually identify as transgender.”
The mother also suggested he was being used as a political pawn during election season:
“He’s a 15-year-old boy that wanted to have sex in the bathroom, with somebody that was willing.
“And they’re twisting this just enough to make it a political hot button issue.”

The rape scandal did affect the race for governor in Virginia after the story exploded back in June.
Scott Smith, the father of the rape victim, was dragged out of a school board meeting with a bloodied mouth on June 22 after listening to school officials deny that a girl had been raped in the bathroom.

The case ignited a raging debate in Loudoun County over transgender students’ rights and parents’ freedom of speech.
The school board was also accused of pushing an ultra-liberal agenda on students and parents and silencing those who disagreed with them.

During the campaign trail, then-Republican gubernatorial candidate Glenn Youngkin referenced the Loudon school board’s coverup, asking “What tragedy next awaits our children?”
Youngkin, who won the Virginia election on Nov. 2, had also previously demanded that Loudoun County Superintendent Scott Ziegler and the school board resign following a bombshell email.
The email proved the board was made aware on May 28 that a female student reported she had been sexually assaulted by a male student in a girl’s bathroom.
The email was sent to school board members about a month before Ziegler said at a board meeting that he had no record of assaults in the school district’s bathrooms.

Youngkin told Fox News:
“This is gross negligence in its most extreme form.
“There must be resignations.
“In fact, people who have not resigned, I don’t understand how they can possibly go into their next school board meeting.
“How can they go into their next school board meeting and be expected to sit there and represent our kids’ future when they covered this up?”
The mother of the rapist told Daily Mail that her son doesn’t identify as a female, and it wasn’t just some disguise to slip into the girl’s bathroom.
She further said that his actions were that of a heterosexual, hormonal teen who had consensual sex with the victim twice before.
Despite her own son claiming he was “pansexual,” the mother told Daily News:
“He would wear a skirt one day and then the next day, he would wear jeans and a T-shirt, a Polo or hoodie.
“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.”

The mother did acknowledge her son is deeply troubled and has an extensive history of misbehavior and has been repeatedly suspended as a result.
She did not deny reports of him having fist fights with classmates or sending nude photos of himself to a girl in fifth grade, but was annoyed that so much information about his past was being revealed.
“What are they trying to do? Did they hire an investigator to dig up everything and ruin him for the rest of his life?”
The mother explained that she and her son’s father split up when he was just a baby. She left New Jersey and moved to Virginia with her son and said:
“He’s been a challenging child his whole life, which I’ve dealt with myself.
“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.”
Even while acknowledging her son’s past troubles, the mother tried to portray the rape in May as a type of accident.
The victim admitted that she had sex with the boy in the bathroom on a previous date, but on May 28 she told him that she was not feeling well and was not in the mood for sex, Daily Mail reported.
According to her testimony, he followed her into the bathroom twice on May 28. During the second time, he followed her into a stall and threw her on the floor and forced her to perform sex acts.
The victim reported he flipped her over on the floor and sexually assaulted her and that he stopped only when someone else had walked into the bathroom. A short time later, she went to the principal’s office to report the rape.
However, the mother did not believe the victim’s account. Instead, she believed her son’s version of events.

The son depicted the rape as an accident, saying he didn’t mean to insert himself into the victim’s anus and was surprised when it caused her pain.
The mother told Daily Mail:
“He said he was intending for vaginal and it ended up for 10 seconds as anal.”
In addition, the mother said her son actually showed concern about the girl’s pain:
“He knew she was in pain. He said, ‘Are you okay?’ She said, ‘That hurt.’ And he’s like, ‘What kind of pain?’
“He was showing genuine concern.”

Mom of Loudoun County Rapist Disgustingly Blames Victim, Defends Son's '15-Year-Old Hormones' – RedState https://t.co/Pk7dJBdby0
Even though a judge found her son guilty, the mother blamed the rape victim:
“If I was in a position where I was about to be raped, I would be screaming, kicking, everything.
“You’re 15. You can reasonably defend yourself. You’re not just going to sit there and take it.
“And so, because there wasn’t a presence of a fight, he felt it was okay to keep going.”
The Loudoun County rapist was convicted on 2 counts of felony rape, with text messages, testimonies, and forensic evidence including a rape kit to prove the crime. The victim's prior sexual history wasn't relevant in court, so why even put it in the press? https://t.co/2Vve9jurhW— Tiana Lowe (@TianaTheFirst) October 26, 2021
The mother also complained about the victim’s father and his decision to publicly lash out about his daughter’s rape. She told Daily Mail:
“News of the second incident and, having been told through informal channels that it was (the same boy), made him snap.
“And so he was not going to be quieted and he was going to let the world know that his daughter was raped by this transgender boy that took advantage of transgender policies, and that LCDS needs to reverse their policies.”

She also accused associates of the Smith family of leaking sealed information, telling Daily Mail:
“So between Scott being all riled up from his position [and leaked information] it was inevitable for this to spread like wildfire.”

She also complained about parents in general, noting that transgender policies have been a hot topic for several years and that a scapegoat case was being sought:
“Parents were looking for that one case and that one piece of evidence that shows that boys are going to take advantage of this to rape their daughters.
“That’s been in the mix since transgender ID was even presented as a possibility of a policy. And so, it happened.”
Towards the end of her interview, the mother reflected and summed up her thoughts:
“What is the end game on this? My son’s going to be going on the sexual registry and be committed to Megan’s Law for the rest of his life because he had 15-year-old hormones.”
“Re-Fund the Police”: Law Enforcement Today launches nationwide campaign for Americans to back the blue
Editor note: In 2020, we saw a nationwide push to “defund the police”. While we all stood here shaking our heads wondering if these people were serious… they cut billions of dollars in funding for police officers. And as a result, crime has skyrocketed – all while the same politicians who said “you don’t need guns, the government will protect you” continued their attacks on both our police officers and our Second Amendment rights.
And that’s exactly why we’re launching this national crowdfunding campaign as part of our efforts to help “re-fund the police”.
For those looking for a quick link to get in the fight and support the cause, click here.
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA – You back the Blue. You support the police. You quietly buy an officer a cup of coffee at your local coffeehouse. You bring homemade cookies to your local police station. You make it a point to thank an officer when you see one out in public.
You watch the news, aghast to see crowds of anti-police protesters and rioters committing acts of violence and massive property damage. You pray daily for the Blue family.
And yet, you may feel quite alone.
Politicians and the mainstream news media would have you think that police support is at an all-time low.
Some of you may have found it necessary to take down your Thin Blue Line flags from your house, or to scrape off the Thin Blue Line sticker from your vehicles, due to the potential for violent retaliation by those who hate the police.
Yes, it is the loudest voices that are the ugliest. They revile and attack those who back the Blue. They call, “Defund the Police!” at every turn, fueled by the lie that police officers are racists who are out to kill.
But you are actually in excellent company in your support of the blue family.
According to a Gallup poll, 85% of Americans support law enforcement. That means supporters of the Thin Blue Line are 285 million strong.
That would be 285 million who, like you, refuse join in the calls to defund the police.
And that means you are in the company of those who have logic and reason on their side.
After all, we at Law Enforcement Today bring you stories daily of exploding crime in police-defunded areas such as Austin, Portland, New York City, or Los Angeles.
Homicide rates since defunding are up 58% in Atlanta, up 533% in Portland, and up 37% in Philadelphia.
Shootings in post-defunded New York City are up 64%, and they are up 51% in Los Angeles and up 18% in Chicago.
In addition, you have also followed our disturbing and often tragic stories of attacks on police officers in the era of police defunding.
Felonious attacks on police are on the rise, as documented by the FBI’s Law Enforcement Officers Killed and Assaulted (LEOKA) Data Collection.
According to LEOKA:
“The 50 law enforcement officers feloniously killed in the first 8 months of 2021 represent a 51.5 percent increase compared to the 33 officers killed during the same period in 2020.”
Also thanks to defunding, police departments across the country now lack training, resources, and equipment. Ironically, calls for additional training in cultural awareness, de-escalation, and use of force often have to go unheeded due to the lack of financial resources.
Another irony is that the push to do away with less-lethal options such as Tasers and tear gas will simply lead to more fatal police shootings.
These alarming stories and statistics indicate beyond a doubt that defunding the police is absolutely the wrong move for this great country. You know this, yet you and 285 million other voices are all too often silenced by social pressures as well as physical threats of violence.
You are even told, “Silence is violence,” when it comes to refusing to stand against law enforcement.
Your voice matters, and you need to be heard.
As Law Enforcement Today National Spokesman Kyle Reyes points out:
“Americans have stood by in disbelief as this ‘defund the police’ movement has spread across America and ravaged our communities.
“We’ve watched our cities burn, our officers be attacked and violence skyrocket.
“It’s time to come out of the twilight zone. It’s time to fight back.”

Law Enforcement Today, the nation’s largest police-owned media outlet, has developed a way to make your voice heard and oppose those who would seek to remove funding from those who protect and serve.
It’s called the “Re-Fund the Police” campaign.
“We wanted to make the “Re-fund the Police” campaign something that everyone- whether you can spare $1 or $1 million – can be a part of.
“People will donate to politicians all day long in hopes that person will get elected and possibly make a difference.
“We are asking for people to come forward and support those who make a difference and save lives every single day.”
Through your generous donations, Law Enforcement today will direct a media and advertising blitz to rally other Americans who, like you, are done with attacks on law enforcement, both physical and financial.
Here’s what the funds go towards:
- We’ve assembled a “strike team” of researchers and reporters who will delve deeply into the devastating impact that defunding the police has on communities and families. They’re going after not just the “leaders” in Congress who are pushing to defund the police… but they’re exposing everyone from the local politicians and city councils who are behind it. They’re also tracing the money of exactly who is funding this “defund the police” movement.
- We will focus on publicizing all the negative effects of defunding police while expressing support for our brothers and sisters in blue. The advertising blitz will be a show of support for police officers all across America.
In addition, we will be sending a team of reporters into our communities to share positive stories of law enforcement, stories which are consistently ignored by the mainstream media.
As a thank-you for your generosity in standing strong for the blue family, we are offering access codes for Law Enforcement Today’s Wounded Officer documentary and Border Crisis documentary. In addition, we offer additional perks such as stickers and Thin Blue Line face masks or yard signs.
Donors are also able to honor or memorialize a member of the blue family.
For those who cannot afford to contribute, we invite you to be a part of a nationwide chain of prayer warriors.
You can join our prayer chain along with other supporters who are willing to pray for our brothers and sisters in blue.
Also, when you sign up for our newsletter, we will keep you informed on how we are continuing to back the Blue, and bring you the stories the mainstream media will not touch.
Now to small businesses who are sick and tired of watching our cities burn as the “defund the police” movement spreads.
For business donors, we are pleased to offer a unique opportunity to make a difference in police departments across the country.
“We wanted to make sure small businesses could get in the fight, so we are rolling out the ‘adopt a police department’ program.”
Your business donation will be used to cover stories in the community of your choice, and expose those who are attempting to defund the police. Those stories, if you choose, will also include a thank you to your business and a link back to your business website.
In addition, your generous business donation will go toward advertising campaigns that highlight the negative effects of demonizing and defunding the police.
This will give you the opportunity to show to millions of Americans that, unlike “woke” anti-police organizations, you support and appreciate law enforcement.
Reyes points out:
“Corporate America rallied around the Black Lives Matter movement, donating hundreds of millions of dollars to a campaign that brought widespread looting and destruction in our cities.
“This is an opportunity for businesses to show America that law and order and keeping people safe still means something to them.”
Please join your voice with Law Enforcement Today in this campaign to support all those who protect and serve us.
