Louisa Teen Arrested for beating 87 Year Old Woman

Last Saturday, an 87 year old woman suffered a severe beating during a robbery in her home. Lois Rosson, the victim, was described by her son as frail and about 90 pounds. He said she will probably lose sight in her left eye as a result of the beating.

It is impossible to hear stories like this and not feel both anger at the perpetrator and profound sorrow for the victim.

But this happened in Louisa County. While the Richmond metropolitan area boasts some of the best law enforcement and investigative personnel and top notch prosecutors, Louisa County is especially blessed.

Louisa County Sheriff Ashland Fortune and his team had suspects, described as persons of interest, in very short order. The evidence collected included DNA evidence, always a crucial part of a conviction in cases like these.

An extraordinary level of cooperation saw a record turnaround of the DNA evidence from the case. This was truly a brilliant team effort to get the perpetrator and his fellow thugs off the streets.

The next phase rests with Louisa Commonwealth’s Attorney Tom Garrett and Deputy Commonwealth’s Attorney Rusty McGuire. I spoke with Rusty McGuire a short time after the announcement of an arrest and McGuire said it had been a long week. He praised the investigators quick work and the remarkable turnaround on the DNA evidence.

“We have not had a chance to catch our breath around here this week” McGuire said. “There was an urgency about this, obviously. Everyone pulled together to solve this and get these individuals off the streets.”

McGuire expressed a deep concern for Lois Rosson, and his hope for her speedy recovery.

At least her recovery will not be interrupted by worry about her attacker being on the street.

Great job, Louisa!

  1. Tom, I was unaware that you were in Louisa!!
    If you’ve been there long, you’ll get a chuckle out of some info. If you’re a new arrival, it won’t mean dick to you.
    I used to date Henry’s daughter.
    Yea…THAT Henry.

    I live in Hanover, so I have no idea who Henry is. I have a number of friends that live in Louisa and have known Rusty for a good while. He and Tom Garrett both take their job seriously. For such a small town, well, county, they have a really great group of people looking out for them.

    I will have to ask Rusty who Henry is next time I see him.

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
