Teresa Jo Burchfield - Arrested by Virginia Police

Talk about irony. Your husband is an ethics lawyer for Donald J. Trump, the President of the United States and police arrests you for, wait for it, engaging in sexual activity with an inmate, in the back seat of a car near his jail.

Police in northern Virginia said this week they arrested Teresa Jo Burchfield, the wife of President Donald Trump’s business organization ethics lawyer, Bobby R. Burchfield.

According to a criminal complaint filed by the Fauquier County General District Court, deputies caught Burchfield and a 23-year-old inmate engaged in sexual activity in the backseat of a car outside the Adult Detention Center in Fauquier County.

53-year old Teresa Burchfield’s husband is veteran Republican Party attorney and partner at Washington’s King and Spalding, Bobby R. Burchfield who was named ethics advisor to the Donald J. Trump Revocable Trust when Trump assumed office. 

Bobby Burchfield served as general counsel to former President George H.W. Bush’s re-election campaign, was assigned to President George W. Bush’s Antitrust Modernization Commission and worked as an attorney for President Bush’s 2000 election recount effort.

According to the Fauquier County sheriff’s office, the unidentified inmate had “trustee status” which means he was held on “minimal charges” and “authorized to perform work inside and outside of the detention center and sheriff’s office facilities.”

The Fauquier County sheriff’s office report said officials allowed the inmate to work outside of the correction center and he had allegedly been socializing with Burchfield for a month.

Burchfield allegedly supplied the inmate with pills, unauthorized cigarettes, and clothes.

The sheriff’s office said in a press release that “during the investigation on Tuesday afternoon, Sept. 5, 2017, detectives discovered an inmate and a female in the rear seat of a vehicle in a parking lot adjacent to the detention center facility.”

Furthermore, the sheriff’s office said that “the inmate was found in possession of suspected vitamin supplement pills and other unauthorized articles alleged to have been obtained from the female,” Fauquier Times reports.

“The defendant was caught in the backseat of her vehicle with an inmate…,” Dept. J. B. Thorpe wrote in Burchfield’s criminal complaint. “When the inmate exited the vehicle, he handed me a bag of brown pills (capsules), that he claims to be workout pills.”

The sheriff’s office said “officials charged Burchfield with willfully delivering unauthorized articles to a confined prisoner, which is a class 1 misdemeanor.”

Burchfield was released on $5,000 secured bond.  According to Virginia state law, Burchfield faces up to 12 months in jail and a $2,500 fine if found guilty.

According to her website, Burchfield worked for Object Video, a firm dedicated to homeland security technology.

“Terri’s background with the internet is noted by her former employment as Vice President at Dimension Data,” the website read. “Dimension Data is a leading global technology company that builds and manages the IT infrastructures that enable companies to operate efficiently and collaborate seamlessly.”
