(TargetLiberty.org) – An FBI agent has been arrested on multiple child sex abuse charges – less than two months after another agent was accused of sexual offenses. It’s another blow for an agency that’s facing rising criticism over-politicized actions and unprofessionalism.
David Harris, age 51 of Prairieville, La was booked on numerous sexual misconduct charges. At the time of the investigation, Harris was assigned to the FBI New Orleans Field Office. https://t.co/043LRDiQMV #LousianaNews #CrimeNews #LouisianaCrimeNews #RegionalNews

Last week, the Louisiana State Police arrested 51-year-old Special Agent David Harris, of the FBI’s New Orleans Field office. Harris was charged with “numerous” offenses including aggravated crimes against nature and indecent behavior with children under 13. Once he’s released from Ascension County Jail, he’ll face other charges of sexual battery, witness intimidation and third-degree rape. The crimes are reported to have taken place across multiple jurisdictions and involve several victims, although exact numbers haven’t yet been released.
Police say they received a complaint about Harris in February and launched a joint State Police-DOJ investigation. This uncovered evidence of multiple crimes going back to 2016, and they finally arrested Harris on Tuesday. According to the county jail, he’s currently being held without bond.
This is the second major sex-related scandal for the FBI this year, after a senior agent at the New York Field Office was investigated for harassing three of his subordinates.
