Virginia Sen. Louise Lucas Charged with Dismantling Confederate Monument

Virginia state Sen. L. Louise Lucas turned herself in Tuesday to the Portsmouth Sheriff’s Office after being charged in connection with the partial dismantling of a Confederate monument that left a man injured.

Lucas was one of 14 people charged in June with conspiracy to commit a felony and injury to a monument in excess of $1,000, Col. Marvin Waters, a spokesperson for the sheriff’s office, told CNN.

Police said the June incident led to “life-threatening” and “permanent” injuries of a man, CNN reported.

Lucas, a member of the state senate since 1992, has been released on a personal recognizance bond.

Others charged in the incident included a Portsmouth school board member, local NAACP chapter members and three public defenders.

The charges drew condemnation from the Virginia Legislative Black Caucus, Gov. Ralph Northam and former Gov. Terry McAuliffe.
