Loudoun Indicts East Coast Rapist

From Jim Plowman:

Leesburg, Virginia –  A Loudoun County Grand Jury returned true bills on a three count indictment charging Aaron H. Thomas with Rape, Abduction with Intent to Defile, and Forcible Sodomy.  The three felonies carry a potential punishment of three life sentences.

It is anticipated that a Capias will issue from the Loudoun County Circuit Court this week for Thomas’ arrest which should ultimately secure his return to Virginia to face trial.  Thomas is currently in custody in Connecticut on charges stemming from a 2007 attack in New Haven.  Thomas has also been charged in Prince William County, Virginia with six felonies and likely faces charges in other area jurisdictions.

Meet the Artist Behind the Leesburg Town Hall Loudoun County Photography Exhibit

Gary Mester is the photographer behind “The Nature of Virginia: Images of Loudoun” exhibit which is currently on display on the first floor of Leesburg Town Hall. Mester has been a photographer for 12 years now. Originally from New Jersey, the Air Force moved Mester to Northern Virginia in 1974. He currently resides in Chantilly, but has explored many parts of Loudoun County with his camera.

“Nothing stays the same. Everything here is so fragile,” said Mester. He feels that people don’t really get out and explore as much; Loudoun County has so much to offer, for example: Aldie Mill and the handful of wineries. His photographs represent ten years of local history and including landscapes and a wide-range of Loudoun County community events. While Mester's favorite type of photography is of "flowers and butterflies," he finds people extremely interesting and continues to photograph a variety of things.
