Buta Biberaj, an attorney supported by George Soros, is receiving a smack on the wrist.
Biberaj is the Commonwealth Attorney for Virginia’s Loudoun County.
Biberaj has been attacked in the past for the manner in which she handles cases and manages her office, notably by her former staff.
An anonymous former prosecutor stated that they were “pushed to bond people out in domestic violence cases,” adding “Buta pushes to let people out generally.”
Since Biberaj’s election, the number of criminal indictments in Loudoun has decreased by 67 percent, a steep decline. In 2019, 681 indictments were issued as opposed to 225 in 2021.
After being arrested for assault, strangling, and abduction, the husband of a woman who was murdered last year was released, according to the victim’s relatives. According to investigators, Peter Lollobrigido murdered his wife following these allegations of abuse.
According to court filings, despite getting a hold order from community corrections, the Commonwealth’s Attorney’s Office under Biberaj released him on a $5,000 unsecured bail.
FOX 5 reported the news that Biberaj’s office had hired a convicted sex offender to work as a paralegal.

According to the New York Post, Biberaj “received “hundreds of thousands of dollars in in-kind contributions” from Democratic megadonor George Soros, the paper said, with the Daily Wire last week putting it at $845,000.” during her 2019 campaign.
Biberaj is now one of 12 members of the “Virginia Progressive Prosecutors for Justice” who are responsible for more than 40 percent of the state and have repeatedly fought to pass laws easing the numbers in prisons.
They have fought to expunge criminal records, end minimum-sentence rules and end three-strike rules, calling it a “mindlessly punitive law” that has “fueled mass incarceration and furthered recidivism.” Read more…
