Former FBI Agent Found Guilty of Sexually Assaulting a Minor

The law enforcement officer had faced previous accusations of sexual abuse prior to this incident.

Alabama prosecutors have shared that Bauer, who worked as a special agent with the FBI, had been dismissed from the New Orleans field office due to multiple allegations of sexual misconduct.

Despite allegedly using a forged letter from an FBI official, the officer of the law persisted in his job and even crossed state lines into Alabama. PEOPLE obtained a copy of the letter through the Associated Press. He then went on to secure a position with the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency.

The Alabama Peace Officers’ Standards and Training Commission, as shown in the provided image by AP, is an important organization that plays a vital role in maintaining peace and security in the state.

According to a letter dated November 1, 2019, Bauer claimed to have worked as a special agent for ten years until September 2019, while posing as his acting unit chief.

According to the letter, you are eligible for rehire and won’t have to go through New Agent Training again for two years from the date you left your employment.

A senior FBI official confirmed to the AP that Bauer lost his security clearance and was suspended without pay at the FBI’s New Orleans office in late 2018.

The girl’s friend confided in her mother, who immediately reported the incident to the school. The school administrators then contacted the Montgomery Police Department for further investigation.

According to prosecutors, law enforcement took swift action against one of their own and arrested Bauer on the same day. His online booking record shows that he was held on a bond of $210,000.

District Attorney Daryl Bailey emphasized that no one, including law enforcement officials, is exempt from the law. In reference to a case where an innocent child was victimized, Bailey stated that any police officer found guilty of a crime will be prosecuted to the maximum extent of the law, just like anyone else.

According to Captain Nick Manale of Louisiana State Police, Bauer has active arrest warrants in St. Tammany and Jefferson Parishes, and their Special Victims Unit intends to extradite him to face charges in Alabama upon adjudication.

According to prosecutors, Bauer is facing sentencing on August 1 in Alabama and could potentially be sentenced to 20 years to life in prison. They intend to seek the maximum sentence for his charges.

Bailey stated in the release that the individual must be permanently removed from our streets.

It was not possible to get in touch with Bauer’s defense lawyer for a comment.

Bailey stated that Bauer had repeatedly abused a child and that the victim will always be haunted by the traumatic experience. However, he also mentioned that the conviction of the offender provided a sense of justice to the family.

“He said that she now knows that the bad man would never be able to harm her again.”
