Two former staffers have been charged in connection with leaking naked photos and videos of a Virgin Islands' delegate and her husband online.
Juan McCullum, who was general counsel for the Delegate, Stacey Plaskett, was indicted by a grand jury on two counts of cyber-stalking for stealing nude photos and videos of Plaskett and her husband and leaking them online. McCullum previously appeared on the VH1 reality-dating show 'I Love New York' under the name 'Pretty.'
Plaskett, although not mentioned in the indictment, last year addressed that images of her and her husband Jonathan Buckney-Small were hacked and released. McCullum, 35, and the second staffer indicted, Dorene Browne-Louis, worked for the Plaskett during a time frame that matches information given by prosecutors.

Plaskett is in her second term in the non-voting position. A spokesman declined immediate comment.
According the unsealed indictment released Thursday, 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.
McCullum was not given permission to take, copy or distribute information from the phone, 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.
McCullum was featured on the VH1 reality show 'I Love New York' in 2007. In an episode he is seen getting
