UP NEXT: Virginia mom sues Fairfax Commonwealth's attorney Steve Descano over how he prosecuted her 11-year-old son's sexual assault case

A mother in Virginia is suing after she claims Fairfax County Commonwealth's attorney Steve Descano mishandled her 11-year-old son's sexual assault case. She says this mishandling led to her son's perpetrator receiving a lesser sentence for his heinous crime. 

Amber Reel's federal lawsuit claims that when Descano was prosecuting her son's sexual assault case last fall, he missed a discovery deadline.

Amber Reel alleges that this mistake resulted in the defendant, Ronnie Reel, pleading guilty to a misdemeanor instead of facing a more serious Sodomy charge and possibly life in prison. 

The lawsuit claims civil rights violations of severe emotional distress for both Amber Reel and her son.
