Secret Service Officer Arrested After Underage Sexting Sting Operation

Screen Shot 2015-11-12 at 5.40.54 PMIn a newly unsealed criminal complaint, a Secret Service officer was shown to have been arrested after sending nude photographs of himself to someone he thought was a 14-year old girl.

Lee Robert Moore, who was reported by The Daily Beast to be an employee of the agency, turned himself into Maryland State Police Barracks after a complaint was filed against him by the District Court. Moore was caught in a sting operation by the Delaware State Police, where records indicated that he sent the photos, requested sexual contact, and held other correspondence with an office posing as a minor.

“What would make you more nervous? Riding on the motorcycle with me or having sex with me,” Moore asked in one of the alleged texts he sent. “I would take immense pleasure in pulling those shorts off your hips and down your cute little legs,” said another.

During his interview with the officers he turned himself in to, Moore handed over his badge and gun, and confessed to having sent messages while on the job at the White House. He is currently on administrative leave.
