WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) – A Secret Service officer who was fired after being accused of trying to solicit sex from an undercover agent he thought was a 14-year-old girl has been moved to South Florida to face criminal charges.

The SunSentinel reports that 38-year-old Lee Robert Moore appeared Tuesday in federal court in West Palm Beach on charges that he tried to lure a Broward County girl into sexual activity.

Moore, who was based at the White House, has been locked up since he was arrested in November on a related federal charge in Delaware.

Moore’s attorneys say their client was recently moved to a Florida jail so he could face the most serious allegations against him first.

Prosecutors in Delaware say Moore sometimes engaged in online sex chats while on duty at the White House.
