Judge Vacates One Hearing, Schedules Another

On Nov. 24, a DC Superior Court judge vacated a status hearing for one defendant and scheduled another hearing in a traffic case. 

Kevin Bynum’s status hearing for two of his cases were vacated. He is charged with conspiracy, armed robbery, possession of a firearm during a crime of violence and receiving stolen property in a 2020 case. He is also charged with robbery, assault with a dangerous weapon and threat to injure or kidnap a person in a 2019 case.

Kashmia Lang, 30, is charged with a DUI, operating a vehicle while impaired and driving without a permit. She entered into a Deferred Prosecution Agreement (DPA) during her hearing.

The prosecution will dismiss Lang’s case if she abides by the conditions of her agreement for 12 months. This includes not being rearrested based on probable cause, remedying her license and providing proof of a valid license, completing the Traffic Alcohol Program (TAP) and attending a victim impact panel and a DC Department of Motor Vehicles approved traffic safety program. 

She must also pay $100 to the Victims of Violent Crime (VVC) fund and $100 to the Washington Regional Alcohol Program (WRAP). 

The judge scheduled a hearing for her on Nov. 23, 2021.
