A defendant accused of committing sexual assault was released by DC Superior Court Judge John Campbell on Dec. 2. He also lifted a stay-away order from the victim.

The defendant is charged with assault with intent to commit first-degree sexual abuse in connection to a domestic violence incident that was allegedly perpetrated this year.

During the proceeding, the prosecution requested that the defendant be released on personal recognizance and that a stay-away order from the victim be revoked.

Defense attorney, Aubrey Dillon, concurred with the prosecution, adding that the victim reportedly declined to respond to detectives investigating the crime. 

Judge Campbell granted the defendant’s release and lifted the stay-away order.

Parties are expected to return to court on Dec. 7 under DC Superior Court Judge Robert Okun to further address matters.
