A federal grand jury in Wilmington, Del. on Wednesday indicted an officer with the U.S. Secret Service-Uniformed Division, who was assigned to the White House, on one-count of attempting to transfer obscene materials to a minor.
Lee Robert Moore, 37, of Church Hill, Md., was arrested Nov. 9, and has remained in custody, the Justice Department said.
A press release stated:
According to the indictment and court documents filed in the case, Moore allegedly maintained a profile on the social media application “Meet24,” which provides a mobile-based platform for exchanging digital images, as well as voice and text messages. Delaware State Police Detectives with the Delaware Child Predator Task Force created a profile on this site, posing as a 14-year-old girl, with whom Moore allegedly engaged in a number of online chat sessions, via the “Meet24” and “Kik” mobile apps over a two-month period, including while Moore was at work. A number of the online chats allegedly between Moore and the supposed female minor were sexual in nature and, on several occasions, Moore allegedly sent pictures of himself, including one depicting his penis.
