This past Monday, 37-year-old Lee Robert Moore turned himself into the Maryland State Police. Moore has been charged with allegedly setting up a meeting for sex with a 14-year-old girl through Kik and another app called Meet24 while on the job. The job part is important since Moore is a former agent of the Secret Service who had worked in the White House.
Of course, the 14-year-old girl was actually a Delaware State Trooper…
Court documents show Moore deleting his Kik profile and stating, “do you know how many fake female profiles are out there, a guy needs some reassurance that he is talking to who he thinks he is talking to, and not I shudder to think.”
Moore then had a similarly explicit conversation with another Delaware State Trooper posing as another underage girl…
Court documents show the two have yet another sexually explicit conversation that lasted 40 minutes on September 28, 2015. During that conversation, Moore and the undercover agent discuss plans for a possible meeting.
On October 6, 2015, court documents show Moore sent a photo of his penis.
In case you needed further ick…
In chatlogs from a criminal complaint obtained by the Daily News, he wrote: “I would take immense pleasure in pulling those shorts off your hips and down your cute little legs” and “All you have to do is enjoy it, tell me how much you’re enjoying it, and moan when it feels good.”
On November 7th, Moore was stripped of his badge and gun and placed on leave. I’m assuming he was placed on leave pending the investigation. After his removal from his post, Moore messaged the ‘girl’ again…
“I don’t think we should talk anymore. I can’t explain, but I have too much going on, and I need to pull away from talking to people online altogether. This will be my last message.”
That has to sting, pun intended, sending further incriminating evidence to someone who’s investigating you, allegedly.
For someone who worked for an agency that’s supposed to protect the President and other dignitaries, and investigate high-profile financial crimes you’d think he’d have covered his tracks better.
UPDATE 9/9/2016: Moore has also been charged with the alleged production of child porn in Florida. He’s been extradited to Florida since the child porn charges are considered more severe.
UPDATE 3/3/2017: Moore has pleaded guilty to charges including enticement of a minor, and attempted transportation of obscene material to a minor. Moore accepted the plea after the government promised not to pursue any further prosecution if any more victims were to come forward. Moore is still looking at a possible life sentence.
