Judge Postpones Hearing for Sex Abuse Case

DC Superior Court Judge Robert Okun decided to continue a status hear Aug. 12 for a felony domestic violence case.

A sex abuse defendant is charged with second-degree sex abuse of a minor, three counts of second-degree sex abuse of a minor with aggravating circumstances, and attempted second-degree of a minor with aggravating circumstances. 

Judge Okun granted a mutual continuance to give the defendant time to consider a plea offer from the prosecution.

The defendant was originally charged in 2020, but the case experienced many delays due to the COVID-19 Pandemic. The indictment on multiple abuse counts took place in February 2022. 

The defendant’s next hearing was scheduled for Aug. 18.
