Loudoun County Commonwealth's Attorney Buta Biberaj

Loudoun County Commonwealth’s Attorney Buta Biberaj speaks at a Feb. 13 press conference held to announce her campaign for reelection.

Buta Biberaj says her criminal justice reform message has been muddled by criticism of her, but the mission will continue.

“When change is transformative, it makes some people very nervous and those who are nervous are the ones who are going to fight it the most,” the Democratic Biberaj said during an announcement on Feb. 13 that she is seeking a second term as Loudoun County commonwealth’s attorney. “Yes, the narrative has been taken away. But at the end of the day, what do we know? That safety is up and crime is down.”
