On Oct. 25, DC Superior Court Judge Robert Okun rescheduled a sexual abuse case involving a DC man and his biological daughter, who was twelve at the time, to give prosecutors more time to receive results from testing.
The defendant is charged with first-degree child sex abuse after allegedly inappropriately touching his 12-year-old daughter.
Defense attorney Roderick Thompson said he was okay with the additional time that the prosecutors need to move forward with another IPA and trial readiness hearing.
On Aug. 5, 2021, a DC woman contacted the Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) after allegedly receiving text messages from her 12-year-old daughter about her biological father touching her, according to court documents.
Documents state the victim told the Youth and Family Services Division the defendant told her to come into his room, get on the bed, and take her pants off. The defendant then began to rub his private part on her private area.
The victim then indicated that something came out of the defendant’s private area and went onto her leg.
The victim allegedly told the defendant she wanted to go with her mother when he began to curse and yell. That is when the victim texted her mother about what happened and deleted the messages because she was afraid the defendant would see the message between her and her mother.
The victim was instructed by her mother not to delete the messages because “it was evidence.”
Members of the Youth and Family Services continued their questions with the victim later discovering the defendant never penetrated her, but he did insert his penis into her mouth. The victim denied that the incident was recent and indicated he did these things when he was “drunk.”
The victim was unable to give a specified age as to when the abuse began.
However, she said he has assaulted her over five times by sucking on things like her chest and her private parts in his apartment on the 1200 Block of 18th Street, NE.
The next hearing is scheduled for Dec. 6.Notifications are not yet available for this specific case. Please check back later for updates. Thank you.
