Ex-U.S. Secret Service Officer Sentenced To Prison For Sexting Minors

Lee Robert Moore


 A Secret Service agent sent nude photos of himself and bragged about working as a law enforcement officer to underage girls while on duty at the White House, according to police in Florida.

  The Department of Justice announced that the Church Hill, Maryland, resident was sentenced to 20 years in prison to be followed by a lifetime term of supervised release for enticement of a minor to engage in sexual activity and attempting to transfer obscene materials to a minor.

  Lee Robert Moore, 38, pleaded guilty before U.S. District Judge Daniel T. K. Hurley of the Southern District of Florida.

  Moore was employed by the U.S. Secret Service-Uniformed Division, and was assigned to the White House at the time of his arrest.

Moore has since been terminated from his Secret Service position.

  According to admissions made in connection with his plea, Moore 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 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 between Moore and the undercover officers posing as a female minor were sexual in nature.

On several occasions, Moore sent pictures of himself, including one sexually explicit image.

  According to the plea documents, after his arrest, law enforcement discovered that Moore had communicated with a minor in Florida.

  Moore admitted that in those communications, he sent sexually explicit images of himself and enticed the minor to send sexually explicit photos of herself as well.

  Moore engaged in the same type of behavior with a 14-year-old girl in Texas and another 17-year-old girl in Missouri.

  Moore requested that his federal charges in Delaware be transferred to the Southern District of Florida so that he could plead guilty to both charges at one time.

  In court, his wife pleaded for leniency. His 1-year-old son and 3-year-old daughter were present in the courthouse, and they were heard crying.

 Moore has been married for 12 years. He told the judge that he became lonely after his children were born because they required more attention from his wife.

  Because of the loneliness, Moore sought the attention of underage girls on the Internet. He claimed that he never intended to meet the underage girls.
