On April 4, a sexual abuse defendant rejected an offer that would have him serve time concurrently for two cases he’s charged in connection to.
The defendant, 20, is charged in connection to a sexual abuse and carjacking that took place on July 11, 2021, at the 500 block of Crittenden Street, NW.
The parties have been in plea negotiation since October, and have been requesting continuations to continue those negotiations in hopes of arriving at an agreement.
The defendant’s attorney told the DC Superior Judge Robert Okun that he felt as if he hadn’t had enough time to review the plea deal, which was finished and officially offered.
The prosecutor said the plea offer would not remain open, and they are ready to go to trial.
All parties are expected back in court on June 27.Notifications are not yet available for this specific case. Please check back later for updates. Thank you.
