Another W&L leader charged with DWI in Westmoreland

Parents, students and county officials were dismayed this week to learn that another prominent faculty member at Washington & Lee High School has been charged with driving while intoxicated.

Russell Anne Perry, 64, who is a psychologist at W&L, was arrested on March 13 and charged with DWI, speeding and refusal to take a Breathalyzer test.  Her arrest comes at a time when W&L is still dealing with the recent DWI arrest of its principal, Andrea Roane.

Westmoreland County Sheriff C.O. Balderson said Mrs. Perry was arrested while driving in the 600 block of Colonial Avenue in Colonial Beach about 6:30 p.m.  Balderson said Perry was cooperative with arresting officer Kim Simon.

Perry was incarcerated at the Northern Neck Regional Jail overnight and was scheduled for an appearance in Westmoreland County General District Court this week.  

Coming just a month after a DWI arrest of W&L Principal Roane, the DWI of another Washington & Lee faculty member in a position of leadership was causing concern among Westmoreland officials, students and parents.

Roane is scheduled to appear in court again on April 28 to answer the charge filed against her. The 39-year-old W&L principal was charged and also held in jail overnight after the car she was driving skidded off the road during a snowstorm just before midnight on Feb. 12.

One of Westmoreland County’s highest paid officials, Roane was initially charged with DWI, reckless driving and use of a handheld device while driving. Later, in General District Court, prosecutors dropped the reckless driving charge.

Sources at the school and at the courthouse said county officials were stunned by the additional arrest of Perry and had expressed their concerns to Westmoreland Superintendent Rebecca Lowery about the signal the two arrests were sending to students and parents.

Westmoreland County Commonwealth’s Attorney Julia Sichol has announced that she has requested a special prosecutor, Jane Wrightson, Northumberland County’s Commonwealth’s Attorney, to prosecute the Roane case. A decision on the prosecution of Perry will follow her appearance in General District Court this week.
