A former Secret Service agent faces up to 35 years in prison after being charged with stealing counterfeit money and trying to pass it off, the First Coast News reports.

Anthony Eugene Preissig, 47, is accused of stealing counterfeit money from the Marion County Sheriff’s Office in Florida.

Preissig retired in 2012 as a special agent.  Ticklethewire.com incorrectly had his title as special agent in charge.

“Whenever a law enforcement officer engages in illegal activity, it erodes the public trust. Such actions by few can tarnish the badges of the many who serve to protect America each day. Corruption remains a top priority of the DHS OIG and we remain committed to holding those who violate the public’s trust accountable for their illegal actions,” said David Nieland, Special Agent in Charge of the Miami Field Office, Department of Homeland Security, Office of Inspector General.

After more than a dozen Secret Service agents and officers were implicated in a prostitution scandal, the agency’s inspector general sought to determine whether the male-dominated agency had widespread problems with sexual misconduct.

The conclusion from the long-awaited report: The Secret Service does not have a widespread problem with sexual misconduct, the Washington Post reports.

The report only found isolated cases of misconduct.

To address the problems, the inspector general offered new guidelines.

“Although individual employees have engaged in misconduct or inappropriate behavior, we did not find evidence that misconduct is widespread in USSS,” the Office of the Inspector General’s report concluded, according to a copy obtained late Thursday by The Washington Post. “Furthermore, we did not find any evidence that USSS leadership has fostered an environment that tolerates inappropriate behavior.”
