Former VH1 reality star ‘stole nude photos of his Virgin Islands Congressional Delegate boss and posted them on …

Two former staffers have been charged 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’ and in 2015 was named the fifth hottest person in politics by The Hill.

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 that time frame.
