FBI Agent’s Alleged Misconduct Forces Mass Release of Convicts, Suspects

Alleged misconduct by an FBI agent has forced authorities to release at least a dozen convicts from prison, the Washington Post reports.

Others awaiting trial on drug charges also have been freed as investigators examine the agent’s role in the case.

It’s not yet clear what the agent is suspected of doing, but it was serious enough to force the freeing of felons.

The cases involve drug-dealing in Washington D.C. and its suburbs.

The U.S. attorney’s office said it is “conducting a case-by-case review of matters in which the FBI agent at issue played some role.”

“We have already begun taking steps to address this issue and are committed to doing everything that is necessary to preserve the integrity of the criminal justice process,” the statement said.
