Sex Abuse Defendant Pleads Out

A defendant initially charged with first-degree sexual abuse pleaded down to misdemeanor sex abuse.  

On the morning of April 8, 2020, police responded to the 1700 block of V Street, SE, due to a report of a sexual assault, according to court documents. The victim told police that the defendant, Darius Robinson, sexually assaulted her. Robinson was later arrested after admitting his crime via text message to the victim. 

Robinson is currently released into the High Intensity Supervision Program (HISP). Defense attorney Wole Falodun asked Judge Marisa Demeo to take his client off home confinement so he can see his children, but she declined the request.

Judge Marisa Demeo scheduled Robinson to be sentenced on Oct. 1.
