The Loudoun County Commonwealth’s Attorney and the Victim Witness Program will host an open house, beginning at 10:00 a.m., Friday, April 7, 2017. The theme of the event is “Strength. Resilience. Justice.” and coincides with the observance of National Crime Victims’ Rights Week.

National Crime Victims’ Rights Week honors and celebrates the achievements of the past thirty years in securing rights, protections, and services for victims. Outreach is increasingly focused on previously underserved populations, ensuring that efforts are being made to provide support to all victims, regardless of their background or the crime committed against them. 

In addition to the open house, there will also be a Victims’ Services Award Ceremony in the Loudoun County Courthouse Community Room at 18 East Market Street in Leesburg. 

Commonwealth’s Attorney Jim Plowman is pleased to announce that this year’s distinguished guest speakers will be Richard Rocha, Barbara Gonzalez, and Elisabeth Corey: 
  • Richard Rocha and Barbara Gonzalez are from the newly established Victims of Immigration Crime Engagement Office of the Department of Homeland Security. 

  • Elisabeth Corey is a survivor of family-controlled child sex trafficking and abuse. As an advocate, Corey works to bring awareness programs on sex abuse and sex trafficking to schools, she trains recovery partners working with adult and child survivors, and she shares her story of trauma and recovery on her blog. 
This year Victims’ Services Awards will be presented to: Leesburg Police Department Lieutenant Jaime Sanford, Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office Detective Michael Grimsley, and David and Stephanie Meeker. 

Members of the public are encouraged to attend the event.
