Del. Dave LaRock's case was continued for second time to May 27, according to court records.
This story has been updated since it was published on Jan. 8.
State Del. Dave LaRock (R-33rd) is scheduled to appear in Loudoun County General District Court Jan. 13 on four misdemeanor charges, including trespassing and destroying a posted sign.
The hearing will occur two days after the state General Assembly session is scheduled to begin Monday.
Caleb Kershner, LaRock’s attorney and a Loudoun County supervisor, said the charges are “baseless” and the allegations include a fence that he owns.
“Just like any other citizen, Mr. LaRock is innocent until proven guilty, which he will not and we anticipate these charges will be ultimately dropped,” Kershner said.
Walter and Christina Curfman, who filed the complaint, said the offenses occurred between Sept. 8, 2020 and Oct. 12, 2020 on their property in the Hamilton area. A no trespass order was provided on Sept. 4, 2020, according to the complaint.
The Curfmans alleged in their complaint that on Oct. 11 LaRock lectured Christina Curfman about her religious position on minority groups and told her she would “meet her maker soon.” The couple said he also drove his SUV directly at Christina, accelerating toward her.
The next day, on Oct. 12, LaRock allegedly entered their property "with the intent to destroy property," according to the complaint. He allegedly cut a chain and removed a gate on the Curfman's property, the complaint said.
LaRock faces two counts of pulling down a fence and leaving a gate open, and one count each of trespassing after forbidden and destruction of a posted sign without consent.
LaRock represents the 33rd District, which covers most of rural western Loudoun County and portions of Clarke and Frederick Counties.
