Three Teenagers Charged With Tuscarora High School Incident

Post Date:10/25/2018 5:04 PM

Leesburg, VA- Two 17-year-old and one 16-year-old Tuscarora High School students have been charged in connection with an incident that occurred in the school’s locker room earlier this month.  One student has been charged with sexual battery and the two other students have been charged with assault and battery.   

The teenagers allegedly assaulted an underclassman on the football team on October 1st after regular school hours. The names of the three teenagers cannot be released due to their status as juveniles. 

A School Resource Officer was made aware of the allegations on the morning of October 5th.

Detectives with the Leesburg Police Department began investigating the circumstances surrounding the assaults in conjunction with Loudoun County Public School officials and staff, parents, and the Loudoun Commonwealth’s Attorney. 

After a thorough investigation and a review of the findings with the Office of the Commonwealth’s Attorney, it was determined that the allegations did not meet the criteria of hazing as defined in the Virginia State Code.
