A former Secret Service agent accused of exchanging sexually explicit photos with minors pleaded guilty Wednesday.

Lee Robert Moore, a 38-year-old Maryland resident who once was assigned to the White House, pleaded guilty to one count of enticement of a minor to engage in sexual activity and one count of attempting to transfer obscene materials to a minor, the Miami Herald reports.

When Moore was arrested on Nov. 9, 2015, he was working in the Secret Service-Uniformed Division and assigned to the White House.

Prosecutors said Moore began a two-month online relationship with who he thought was a 14-year-old girl. The girl turned out to be Delaware State Police detectives.

Moore also admitted to having similar relationships with minors in Florida, Missouri and Texas.

The Secret Service fired Moore.

Three former East Cleveland police officers accused of stealing money from suspected drug dealers, often while conducting illegal searches, were charged in federal court Thursday.

Charged were Torris Moore, Antonio Malone and Eric Jones.

“The three officers charged today—unlike the overwhelming majority of police officers—did not protect and serve, but rather pillaged and plundered,” Steven M. Dettelbach, U.S. attorney for the Northern District of Ohio, said in an FBI press release. “They viewed the drug trade as an opportunity to enrich themselves, and lied to the court, their fellow officers and the citizens of East Cleveland to pull off their criminal conspiracy.”

Moore was a sergeant supervising the Street Crimes Unit, where Malone and Jones were detectives.

They also are accused of fabricating reports.

“These three officers acted like cunning criminals rather than honorable public servants that are sworn to protect and serve,” said Stephen D. Anthony, special agent in charge of the FBI’s Cleveland Office. “They will be held accountable for their reprehensible conduct.”

Border Patrol Agent Indicted on 19 Counts Related to Hidden Camera in Station Bathroom

A Border Patrol supervisor accused of hiding a camera in the women’s bathroom at an agency station in California was indicted Thursday on 19 counts.

The indictment alleges that Armando Gonzalez, 46, “with intent, did capture an image of a private area of an individual without their consent … and knowingly did so under circumstances in which the individual had a reasonable expectation of privacy,” from July 19, 2013, until Jan. 9 at the Chula Vista station, the U-T San Diego reports.

Gonzalez was arrested earlier this month and pleaded not guilty to related charges.

The motion-activated camera was found Jan. 9, and Gonzalez claimed he installed it because he suspected an employee was using illegal drugs.

The indictment states otherwise: “No such drug investigation was ongoing.”
