Defense Requests a Continuance to Review Plea Offer

During a felony status conference on March 15, DC Superior Court Judge Robert Okun agreed to continue a case to allow the defense more time to review a plea offer.

A twenty-year-old defendant is charged with unarmed carjacking, kidnapping while armed, and first-degree sexual abuse by force against a victim for an incident that allegedly occurred on July 11, 2021, on the 500 block of Crittenden Street, NW.

During the hearing, the defense requested to continue the case due to discussions over whether or not the defendant would accept a plea offer.

According to court documents, the victim had been sitting in her car when an unknown male approached her. He climbed in her car, without consent, and directed her to an alley.

The documents further states that the defendant allegedly raped the victim and stole her car.

The parties are scheduled to return April 4 for a felony status conference.
