Loudoun Sheriff’s Office: Investigation into Damron’s time at Dominion H.S. closed
The investigation was launched Dec. 5 2016 after allegations surfaced against Damron in a Florida school system. He had left Dominion in January 2015, citing personal reasons.
When Loudoun County Public Schools (LCPS) became aware of allegations that Damron had engaged in inappropriate behavior in Duval County, Florida, LCPS officials said they “promptly” reported the matter to the sheriff's office.
Loudoun County Sheriff's Office spokesman Kraig Troxell told the Times-Mirror the investigation into Damron's time at Dominion lasted just over a month, from Dec. 5, 2016, to Jan. 10.
“Detectives conducted numerous interviews and followed up on multiple leads during the course of the investigation. No criminal charges are pending,” Troxell said.
Troxell would not say whether Damron or Brewer were interviewed in the course of the investigation into the band director's time at Dominion.
“It would be inappropriate to comment on the details of the investigation, to include any statements made or the identity of those interviewed during the course of the investigation,” Troxell said.
Loudoun County Public Schools had also reported an allegation against Damron to the LCSO in 2014, but the investigation didn't go forward because the alleged incident happened in another county.
Damron resigned from his position in Florida in November 2016, soon after the local school system's investigation surfaced. He has not been charged with a crime and maintains his innocence.
In December 2016, the Times-Mirror disclosed the investigation by Duval County School Police, Florida, in which Damron revealed incidents at Dominion.
Dr. John Brewer, who had written a letter of recommendation for Brian Damron to prospective employers in Florida, took administrative leave from his post as principal of Dominion High School on Dec. 3, 2016, shortly after The Florida Times-Union first reported the allegations against Damron, both in Florida and at Dominion.
LCPS administration won’t comment in detail on Brewer’s leave, citing privacy in personnel matters.
