A Loudoun County judge has set a new trial date for former superintendent Scott Ziegler a month after a guilty verdict was set aside for retaliatory firing of a teacher who reported an elementary school student inappropriately touched her.

On Thursday morning, Circuit Court Judge Douglas Fleming set February 3, 2025, as the first day of a possible five-day jury trial, according to information obtained by our partner WTOP News.

Ziegler was convicted in 2023 on a misdemeanor charge of violating the state’s conflict of interest laws after he allegedly fired the teacher in retaliation for her testimony to a special grand jury that was investigating him.

Virginia Attorney General Jason Miyares convened a special grand jury at Youngkin’s request to investigate the school system. The grand jury indicted Ziegler and then-school system spokesman Wayde Byard. A jury last year acquitted Byard of perjury during the investigation.
