Two former staffers charged in cyberstalking of U.S. House member, husband

By Spencer S. Hsu July 13 at 7:17 PM

Two former staff members have been charged in the circulation of nude images and video of an elected representative to Congress and her husband, federal prosecutors and the U.S. Capitol Police announced Thursday in Washington.

Juan R. McCullum, 35, of Washington, was indicted by a grand jury on two counts of cyberstalking, and a co-worker, Dorene Browne-Louis, 45, of Upper Marlboro, was indicted on two counts of obstruction of justice, U.S. attorney for the District Channing D. Phillips and Capitol Police Chief Matthew R. Verderosa said in a statement.

The charging documents state both defendants worked for the same official, who is identified in the filings by the initials S.P.

A spokesman for the Virgin Islands nonvoting delegate to the U.S. House of Representatives, Del. Stacey Plaskett (D-V. I.), confirmed Thursday that S.P. is Plaskett and said the office would release a statement late Thursday or Friday.

In July 2016, when some of the personal photographs surfaced on the Internet shortly before a primary election, Plaskett condemned the public unauthorized distribution of her private photographs.
