Judge Grants Continuance for Child Sex Abuse Defendant

D.C. Superior Court Judge Rainey Brandt issued a continuance for a 2021 child sex abuse hearing.

The 30-year-old defendant is charged with first-degree child sex abuse for allegedly forcing his 9-year-old daughter to perform oral sex on him. The defendant claimed he initiated this act to punish his daughter for the supposed pornographic content on her phone, according to court documents. He was arrested and charged on Sept. 14. 

During the Aug. 26 hearing, defense attorney Dana Page requested a motion to reschedule the current hearing, saying “we’re still trying to come up with a resolution for this case.” 

Judge Brandt accepted the request.

The next hearing is scheduled for Oct. 14 when the prosecution’s current plea offer is set to expire.
