Two former employees of Virgin Islands Delegate Stacey Plaskett (D) have been charged in connection with the leaking of naked photos and videos of the congresswoman and her husband Jonathan Buckney-Small online.
Juan McCullum, who worked as general counsel for Plaskett, has been indicted by a grand jury on two counts of cyber-stalking. Dorene Browne-Louis, who worked as scheduler and administrative director for Plaskett, has been indicted on two counts of obstruction of justice but has not been accused of disseminating the stolen media.
According to the Daily Mail, the unsealed indictment states “McCullum offered to help Plaskett repair a malfunctioning iPhone by taking it to a local Apple store in May of 2016.”
Plaskett gave McCullum the password to the phone in order to get it repaired, and the phone contained nude images and video of Plaskett and her husband, the document says. […] In early July 2016, after McCullum left Plaskett’s office, he created an email account with a fictitious name and sent at least 10 emails to politicians, members of the media and others in which he attached one or more of the nude images or video, the document alleges. He also allegedly created a Facebook account and posted several of the nude images and videos and ‘friended’ people Plaskett knew, including politicians competing with her in a primary election.
