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.
