A Secret Service agent was sentenced to 20 years in prison for sexting teens from the White House.
Lee Robert Moore, 38, pleaded guilty to charges of enticing a minor to engage in sexual activity in March.
At the time of his arrest, Moore was on duty at the White House and was part of the uniformed detailed assigned to protect President Obama.
NBC News described Moore’s actions:
Moore was nabbed in an undercover sting when he sent indecent materials, including a picture of himself, to someone he thought was a teenage girl on the mobile apps Kik and Meet24, according to the criminal complaint. The “girl” turned out to be an agent of the Delaware State Police working with the Delaware Child Predator Task Force.
Moore’s wife had urged the judge to show mercy, but U.S. District Judge Daniel Hurly was not inclined to go easy on the ex-Marine and former Secret Service agent.
Moore must also register as a sex offender and attend sex treatment sessions.
