Virginia Dems Vote to End Mandatory Reporting at Schools for Sexual Battery, Marijuana and More

‘The Democrat majority in Virginia’s House of Delegates has voted to end mandatory reporting of crimes as serious as sexual battery, stalking, and threats by students against school teachers and staff as part of the “restorative justice” initiatives the party has pushed nationwide.

HB 257, introduced by Delegate Mike Mullin (D-93), “eliminates the requirement that school principals report certain enumerated acts that may constitute a misdemeanor offense to law enforcement,” by raising the threshold of crimes that must be reported to police to mainly felony-level offenses.

As a result of the incorporation of another bill – HB 695 – into Mullin’s, HB 257 will remove the requirement that school officials report the possession of less than one-quarter ounce of marijuana found on a student’s person or possessions “on a school bus, on school property, or at a school-sponsored activity.”

In other words, Virginia Democrats have quasi decriminalized the possession of marijuana and amongst children so long as they are in possession of the drug while they’re at school.’
