A former FBI agent says the agency covered up the sexual abuse of a young boy in a rural New Mexico town by former agents.
In a sworn affidavit, Christopher McHenry said he was at a party where a man said he had molested a boy when he was 14 years old.
The man, who was at the party with his parents, was arrested and later pleaded guilty to sexually assaulting the boy.
McHenry said that while he knew the man was innocent, he felt bad for him because of his previous experience with the law.
He said he worked with a case manager for the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) for several years in the 1990s who took care of some cases.
He said they made sure that the man had his own attorney and that the case was closed after the victim recanted.
McNeil said the case manager had a bad relationship with the FBI and that he knew of a number of agents who were involved in sexual misconduct cases.
McWhiney said that he has been accused of sexual misconduct before and was the one who recommended the case be dropped because he believed the agency did not have a policy of reporting child abuse cases.
He also said he has worked with some former agents who said that they had been sexually harassed by supervisors.
“It’s a pattern,” he said.
“I think we’ve had too many examples in the past.
We’ve lost too many cases.
We’re just too slow in making sure these things don’t happen again.”
McHenry worked as an agent for the FBI’s El Paso office and said that his wife, who also worked for the agency, was sexually harassed and sexually abused by a supervisor at the agency.
McHe said the supervisors also made it clear to him that the abuse was acceptable because of the FBI career opportunities available.
McHugh said that when he asked why the supervisor would lie to him, the supervisor said, “If it was going to be my career, I’d do it.”
McHe also alleges that the FBI was aware of at least two other sexual abuse cases involving former agents, one of which was investigated by the Office of Special Counsel.
The other case was the abuse of an 8-year-old boy in Virginia in 1992.
Mc He said that at that time, the FBI had been aware of other sexual assault cases in the agency’s files but was not aware of any other sexual misconduct by the agency that involved an FBI agent.
He added that he was aware that sexual harassment allegations against the agency were under review.
McHamilton is currently in federal prison for a 2008 sexual assault.
He served a year and a half in federal custody in Virginia after pleading guilty to a charge of sexually assaulting a 14-year old boy.
He was sentenced to 10 years in prison.
He has since been released.
