Trespassing in Virginia could be considered a Class 1 misdemeanor, according to the Virginia code. Class 1 misdemeanors are “the most serious misdemeanors in Virginia” and are punishable up to 12 months in jail, or a fine of up to $2,500, or both.
The Daily Caller’s editorial director Vince Coglianese reported that Virginia’s Attorney General Jason Miyares is “set to intervene” in the Loudoun County mask fight.
“I think you’ll be seeing some moves from our office in the next 24 hours on behalf of those parents in Loudoun,” Miyares said.
Loudoun County Public School’s spokesperson Wayde Byard told the Daily Caller that suspended students have access to their schoolwork through “Schoology.” Byard confirmed that students will be suspended for 10 days or “until they comply with the LCPS COVID-19 mitigation practices.”
