The case against a man who allegedly fired a gun at Sully’s Pour House in 2021 is moving forward.

A status hearing has been set for Monday, April 3, a spokesperson for Fairfax County Commonwealth Attorney’s Office told FFXnow.

The hearing comes after the owners of the gastropub in the Town of Herndon slammed Descano and his office, claiming that they’re pursuing a plea deal against defendant De’Quinn Le’Charn Hall, 29. Hall allegedly fired a gun at the gastropub in November 2021. No injuries were reported.

In several public social media posts, the owner stated that Descano had previously pledged not to pursue a plea deal and intended to pursue felony charges.

“We were PROMISED by STEVE DESCANO himself that he WOULD NOT ALLOW THE PLEA DEAL TO GO THROUGH. HE PROMISED — Why are we still shocked that HE LIED?!” Sully’s Pour House said in one Facebook post.

Laura Birnbaum, spokesperson for the Office of the Commonwealth’s Attorney, said that no update on a plea bargain has been discussed.

“There hasn’t been any movement in this case since December or any updated discussion of a plea,” Birnbaum told FFXnow.

The confusion was caused by a clerical error in the court schedule, which mistakenly tagged the case with the label of “plea,” she said.

Birnbaum said there no other substantial developments to share about the case.

In December of last year, the restaurant’s owners voiced frustration with the overall handling of the case by prosecutors.
