Trial date set in case against Culpeper top prosecutor

Megan Frederick
July 28 is the date set for a bench trial in the civil assault and battery law suit filed against Commonwealth Attorney Megan Revis Frederick. Culpeper County IT Systems Administrator Todd Frazier claims Frederick assaulted him March 4, 2013 after he performed work on the computer system in her office.

Fraizer is seeking $25,000 in damages from Frederick for the alleged incident. He filed the suit just days before the statute of limitations would have barred any legal action based on the alleged incident.

Fauquier County Judge Charles Foley gave Fraizer until April 25th to file a “Bill of Particulars” which will outline the facts of his case. He also ordered Frederick to file her “Grounds of Defense” by May 25 which will answer the allegations in the Bill of Particulars.

Both documents are standard filings in a Warrant in Debt civil action.

Foley was called in as a substitute judge to hear the case because of Frederick’s position as Commonwealth Attorney.

According to those familiar with the incident, Frazier’s Warrant in Debt stems from an incident in Frederick’s office between Frederick and Frazier. Frazier, acting under orders from his superiors, removed a computer program, which accessed criminal records, from Frederick’s office. She allegedly confronted him about the removal.

Frazier declined to comment on the incident because of the pending litigation.

Frazier appeared without an attorney although he said he is in the process of securing one. Frederick, who came to court with her assistant Angela Catlett, told the court Leesburg attorney Daniel Travostino will represent her.

This is the second civil law suit Frederick has had filed against her by another member of the county government. Last year Stevensburg Supervisor Bill Chase filed a $1.75 million defamation suit against the Commonwealth Attorney. That suit stems from an email Frederick sent out in which she characterized unnamed members of the board of supervisors as “corrupt” and “incompetent.”

The defamation suit is scheduled for a jury trial in Circuit Court April 21-22, 2015. The email also prompted the Culpeper Board of Supervisors to file an October 2013 complaint with the Virginia State Bar against Frederick.
