White House Secret Service Agent Busted for sexual exploitation of teen girls
Meet Lee Robert Moore, 38 a former White House Secret Service Agent was caught sexting teenage girls last November. While he thought he was sexting a 14 year old girl, he was actually sexting with a Delaware Child Predator Task Force undercover officer.
While being questioned by investigators he told them that he had sexually explicit online communication with around 10 teenage girls. Most shocking of all, he confessed that his “absolute minimum” age for girls was 14 years old.
Lee was indicted on 3 federal charges while on duty between January and May of 2014
Attempted production of child pornography
Attempted receipt of child pornography
Using a computer to persuade, entice or coerce a minor to engage in sexual activity
Investigators said they communicated with him for 2 months, while his second child was born and while that child was experiencing a medical condition that required what was described as a pretty significant surgery.
Lee during one communication had expressed that he wanted to travel to Delaware to meet with the “teen” for sex.
He would meet his victims through Kik which is a mobile messenger type of service that is highly popular with teens and Meet24 which is a chat, flirt and hookup service.
Once he realized that he was under investigation and more than likely would be arrested he destroyed digital evidence according to the charges. Unfortunately, he didn’t quite think that move through because now prosecutors can pretty much prove that he destroyed digital evidence.
What makes this case absolutely astonishing is the fact that while Lee was being investigated, investigators realized that not only was he attempting to sexually exploit teens while at work, he was doing it in presence of other officers, while in the presence President Obama, around senior administration officials he was to be “protecting,” and his own family.
Lee is currently housed at the Palm Beach County, Florida Jail because he wants to face the most serious allegations against him first and those happen to be in Florida. It has been rumored that Florida is considering adding more charges as well.
A trial date has not been set yet.
What is not clear is exactly how, Lee was able to clear the stringent psychological and character evaluations in order to become a White House Secret Service Agent and then manage to sext 14 year old girls, from what is supposed to be one of the most secure places in the US.
Then again in December, the House Committee did describe the US Secret Service as an Agency that was in a crisis.
