​"Disturbing" sex abuse within agency that patrols U.S. border, says former top official

WASHINGTON - A CBS News investigation has found sexual misconduct in the ranks of U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) is "significantly" higher than other federal law enforcement agencies, according to the agency's former head of internal affairs.
In April, one agent in Arizona was indicted for sexually assaulting a 5-year-old child off duty. The allegation is just the latest in a string of cases where agents -- on or off duty -- have been accused of sex crimes against women or children.

During the Congressional hearing on border agent crime last year, the US admitted that since 2004, over 130 agents of the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) have been arrested, charged, or otherwise prosecuted on corruption charges. The convictions include alien and drug smuggling, money laundering, and conspiracy.
