County To Stop Prosecuting Hit-And-Runs, Other Crimes

  • The Loudoun County Office of the Commonwealth’s Attorney in Virginia will no longer prosecute certain misdemeanor charges in an effort to crack down on more violent crimes, according to a letter sent to local judges in late December.
  • Attorney Buta Biberaj announced her office would no longer prosecute certain misdemeanor charges beginning next week in an effort to allocate resources toward more violent cases, she wrote in a letter to county judges on Dec. 30.
  • Instead, certain misdemeanors, such as hit-and-runs and public intoxication, will be deferred to local courts and law enforcement.
