Scott Ziegler Found Guilty After Loudoun County Jury Trial

RICHMOND, VA – Attorney General Jason Miyares announced today that a Loudoun County jury found former Loudoun County Superintendent Scott Ziegler guilty of a class one misdemeanor for the retaliatory firing of a school teacher.

Ziegler faces up to 12 months in jail, and or a $2,500 fine. His sentencing is scheduled for January 4th, 2024.

"Justice has finally been served in Loudoun County. Nearly two years ago, Loudoun County Public Schools and the Loudoun County School Board were thrown into the public spotlight for all the wrong reasons. One of the casualties of their neglect and mismanagement led to the retaliatory firing of a dedicated and caring school teacher. Today, my office brought a measure of justice for Erin Brooks. The Office of the Attorney General will always be a voice for victims, and we’re grateful for the jury’s verdict,” said Attorney General Jason Miyares.
