“The Loudoun County Sheriff’s Department confirmed that the first sexual assault took place at Stone Bridge High School on May 28, 2021, and that the second took place at Broad Run High School on October 6, 2021,” Breitbart News reported.
“The 15-year-old boy was convicted of both assaults and sentenced to complete a “residential program in a locked-down facility,” it added.

The new ruling will force the investigation to continue despite protests from the school board.
