            Beatty made her initial appearance before Superior Court Magistrate Judge Renee Raymond, on March 21, 2024, where Judge Raymond found probable cause that Beatty committed the offense of carjacking and ordered that Beatty be held without bond pending trial. The United States is still investigating Beatty’s armed accomplice. 

            According to court documents, Beatty was a passenger in a car driven by her male accomplice. After her accomplice ran a stop sign and struck the victim’s vehicle, Beatty got out of the car. When the victim got out of his car, Beatty’s accomplice displayed a firearm, causing the victim to retreat from his door. Beatty then got in the driver’s seat of the victim’s vehicle and drove off. Police later recovered the car parked near Beatty’s home.

            This case is being investigated by the Metropolitan Police Department and prosecuted by the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia.

            Charges are merely an allegation, and all defendants are presumed innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.
