A U.S. Secret Service agent was indicted Wednesday for allegedly sending a picture of his penis to an undercover officer pretending to be a 14-year-old girl, all while at work.

Lee Robert Moore, 37, was charged with one federal count of attempting to transfer obscene materials to a minor and a state count of sexual solicitation of a child under 18 and providing obscene material to a minor. Moore allegedly messaged her for two months, including while at work, sending her sexual pictures and trying get her to have sex with him.

“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 allegedly 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,” the Department of Justice said in a statement.

The indictment is one of a slew of scandals the agency has been caught up in, including agents who were caught trying to solicit prostitutes overseas and when a man jumped a the White House fence and was able to make it all the way into the building.

The indictment case as part of Project Safe Childhood, a DOJ project started in 2006 to combat child sex exploitation.
