Brutal Domestic Homicide Sparks Backlash Against Soros Prosecutor

Biberaj is one of several defendant-friendly prosecutors serving in Virginia

A Virginia prosecutor backed by progressive billionaire George Soros is facing heat over her handling of domestic violence cases after an accused wife-beater out on bond allegedly murdered his wife with a hammer.

Authorities will charge Peter Lollobrigido for the brutal murder of his wife Regina Redman-Lollobrigido, who died in a hospital Sunday following a Sept. 19 assault. Lollobrigido was arrested on domestic assault charges in July, but he was released a week later on just $5,000 bond. Local critics fear his quick release is a tragic example of Loudoun County commonwealth’s attorney Buta Biberaj’s (D.) defendant-friendly approach.

Biberaj is one of several progressive prosecutors elected in Northern Virginia in 2019. Her campaign was powered in significant part by a $659,000 in-kind donation from Soros’s Justice and Public Safety PAC. She was elected in 2019 alongside Steve Descano in Fairfax County and Parisa Dehghani-Tafti in Arlington County, who also benefited from large contributions from the reclusive financier.

Consistent with her progressive approach, Biberaj has characterized domestic violence as a health problem that warrants a social, not criminal, response. Biberaj has rankled local Democrats, and the Lollobrigido case will likely boost a budding campaign to remove her from office. An advocacy group called Virginians for Safe Communities is leading that effort.

“This case and many more like it in Loudoun and across the country are stark reminders of the danger these rogue prosecutors like Buta Biberaj pose to victims and law-abiding citizens,” Virginians for Safe Communities president Sean Kennedy told the Washington Free Beacon. “These radical activists are betraying the oath they swore to protect victims, guard the public safety, and enforce the law. Instead, they put criminals first, and victims last.”
