Two former aides were indicted by a grand jury after they were accused of stealing nude images and a video of a Virgin Islands delegate and posting them online, Fox News reports.
The US Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia announced that Juan McCullum, 35, was indicted on two counts of cyberstalking Thursday.
Dorene Brown-Louis was also indicted on two counts of obstruction of justice.
The two were indicted in connection to a nude image and video leak of Del. Stacey Plaskett, a two-term non-voting delegate to Congress from the Virgin Islands.
McCullum and Brown-Louis were both listed as having worked for Plaskett.
According to prosecutors, McCullum obtained the photos in March of 2016 after offering to help Plaskett fix her iPhone.
Prosecutors say McCullum found the images and a video of the delegate and her husband and stole the files.
More, via Fox News:
After he left Plaskett’s office in July 2016, officials claim McCullum sent some of Plaskett’s private pictures to lawmakers and members of the media from a dummy email account. He’s also accused of creating a fake Facebook account and sending the images and video to people who knew Plaskett via the social media platform. Some of those McCullum allegedly sent the files to included politicians competing with Plaskett in a primary election.
Authorities said Browne-Louis, 45, made false and misleading statements to investigators.
