Secret Service Officer Charged With Sexting 14-Year-Old From White House

A uniformed Secret Service officer was arrested for allegedly sending nude photos to a contact he thought was a 14-year-old girl, with some texts sent while on the job at the White House, CNN reported Thursday.

According to the newly unsealed criminal complaint, the officer was nabbed as part of a sting operation by the Delaware State Police, and turned himself in to authorities on Monday.

CNN reported the officer, who was not identified, sent “lewd communications” and talked about meeting up for sexual acts in the texts, which he unknowingly sent to a state police detective. The complaint said the officer was bored while checking IDs in a booth at the White House.

“What would make you more nervous: riding on the motorcycle with me or having sex with me?” read one of the texts, which CNN reporter Pamela Brown read on air.

In another message from the officer to who he believed was a 14-year-old girl, he allegedly said: “May seen like a small thing in the grand scheme, but I would take immense pleasure in pulling those shorts off your hips and down your cut little legs.”

After the officer reportedly admitted to the crimes, he was stripped of his badge and gun and placed on administrative leave, according to the network.
