Suspect in D.C. Transgender Assault Case Reprimanded
A D.C. Superior Court judge this morning reprimanded Ahmad Robinson, accused of attacking a transgender woman in D.C.'s Chinatown neighborhood in August, for not complying with release terms. During the Feb. 22 hearing, Judge Rhonda Reid Winston also ordered the government to be more forthcoming in providing Robinson's defense team with discovery, or evidence expected to be used at trial. Judge Winston warned Robinson, of Silver Spring, this morning she will be forced to impose harsher release terms if he does not comply. Robinson, released on bond, was ordered to report to the court's Pretrial Services Agency (PSA), continue with a drug-treatment program, submit to drug testing on a regular basis, and stay away from the victim in the case.
