In August, MPD announced that they had made an arrest in a string of sexual assaults that occurred around Dupont. They charged the man, Oscar Mauricio Carnejo-Pena, with five counts of Misdemeanor Sexual Abuse. He plead guilty to those charges and residents had a short time to provide a Community Impact Statement to the judge to influence his sentencing. Kishan and I submitted the statement below that was accepted by the judge at sentencing:
We are extremely grateful for the hard work of MPD and the U.S. Attorney's Office in this case and I will keep working closely with them to track and influence serious crimes in our neighborhood.
