Court documents indicated that prosecutors and Loskarn's lawyers “intend to explore the possibility of a pre-indictment disposition” and had agreed to a 30-day delay in the deadline to obtain a grand jury indictment. The new deadline for an indictment in the case is Feb. 10.

Loskarn, a 35-year-old Maryland native, was arrested last month on charges of possession and distribution of child pornography. A few hours after the arrest, Alexander announced that he had removed Loskarn from his payroll and appointed a new chief of staff.
