Mother of "Skirt Wearing" Rapist in Loudoun Blames Victim for Being Sexually Assaulted

Mother of "Skirt Wearing" Rapist in Loudoun Blames Victim for Being Sexually Assaulted

The mother of the 15-year-old boy at the center of the Loudoun County school rape spree has come out and slammed the young victim of the assault, claiming she was "willing" and that her son isn't to blame for the rape.

The Loudoun County School Board came to international attention in October when a father revealed his ninth-grade daughter had been sexually assaulted in the girl's restroom at her school by a male student "wearing a skirt." The assault took place at Stone Bridge High School in May, and was followed by a series of controversies including the father being violently arrested when trying to confront School Board members about the assault at a public meeting.

The boy would be promptly transferred to another school where he would later be arrested for sexually assaulting yet another young female student – this time confining the girl in an empty classroom and molesting her.

In October, the teen was found guilty of rape in the first case after being charged with two counts of forcible sodomy, one count of anal sodomy, and one count of forcible fellatio. He is awaiting trial on the second assault.

Today, the mother of the boy came forward to speak with the Daily Mail about the incidents, but rather than showing any empathy for victims – she slammed them while defending her son.

"He's a 15-year-old boy that wanted to have sex in the bathroom, with somebody that was willing," she stated, seemingly neglecting the fact her son had been convicted of rape, "And they're twisting this just enough to make it a political hot button issue."

She went on to blame the victim in the first case for her own sexual assault, saying "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."

The woman admitted that her son has run into trouble prior to either of the sexual assaults he committed this year, including sending nude photos of himself to a girl in fifth grade. But even when confronted with those details which had been uncovered by reporters, she pushed back unapologetically.

"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 boy's mother said that he had sodomized the girl in the first incident "by accident," going on to claim that "[he] said he was intending for vaginal and it ended up for 10 seconds as anal."

The boy allegedly identifies as "pansexual" and enjoys gender-bending using his clothes, but allegedly does not identify as transgender according to his mother. A recent photo revealed of him shows him wearing a skirt, as well as a leather choker that says "kitten." In the photo he is standing in front of a number of pride flags – including ones for pansexual, asexual, and LGBT people. The photo was first published by the Daily Mail, but was apparently removed in an upated version of their article.
