Deferred Finding Entered in School Threat Case

The Fairfax County teen whose social media posting prompted an emergency lockdown at Farmwell Station Middle School last December will see the criminal charge dropped if he remains on good behavior for the next year. 

Shane D. Lucas appeared in Loudoun County Circuit Court on Monday for a plea and sentencing hearing and was provided with deferred disposition that will allow the charge to be dismissed on April 27, 2023. 

He was charged with making threats of bodily injury or death to persons on school property, a Class 6 felony. He was cited by investigators as the source of a Dec. 7, 2021 social media post that included a photo of a firearm and threatening statements toward Farmwell Station Middle School. The 18-year-old had been a student at the school.

    It’s sad to think a teen would resort to such troubling behavior. I hope he’ll reflect deeply on his wrongdoing in the coming year. With any luck, his slate will be wiped clean next April. And the young man will go on to become a productive member of society. Happy Ramadan Loudoun!

    Unbelievable. Make a public threat against a middle school showing a firearm, and they just walk.

    I’m sure the “Mom’s Demand Action” and “Everytown” gang will throw on their colored shirts and protest outside the CA’s office, yes? Oh wait… Never mind.

    Why do we even have laws if (D)’s like Buta Bibberaj won’t seek punishment when criminals violate them?

    The people of Loudoun deserve better representation in the criminal justice system than what we have now. Apprarently, the CA isn’t aware that she (supposedly) stepped away from her defense attorney job when she took office after George Soros invested hundreds of thousands of dollars into her campaign.
