Domestic Violence Defendant Accepts Plea in Revenge Porn, Stalking Case

A defendant accepted a plea agreement in a felony domestic violence case he picked up after publishing explicit material of a victim without her consent.

Carlton Robertson pleaded guilty to first-degree unlawful publication, stalking and threats to do bodily harm on Jan. 11. In exchange for the plea, the prosecutor is dismissing several misdemeanor cases he currently has open.

The defendant admitted to posting lewd and sexual videos of the victim on Facebook and Reddit, as well as threatening to physically hurt the victim and her child.

The defendant is currently on release and attended the hearing remotely. He is required to stay away from the victim and refrain from contacting her. He is also not allowed to post on social media about the victim or any members of her family.

DC Superior Court Judge Rainey Brandt scheduled a sentencing hearing for March 11, which Robertson must attend in person.
