SECRET SERVICE AGENT ARRESTED ON CHILD PORN CHARGES

According to Maryland State Police, a Secret Service employee was arrested Tuesday on child porn charges.

Jeffrey Litteral, 52, of Denton, Maryland, who is being held in jail without bond, has been charged with possession of child porn, distribution of child porn, possession of obscene materials and distribution of obscene materials.

The investigation into Litteral started in 2017 when a Maryland State Police investigator received information from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children about possible child pornography being uploaded online.  Investigators identified Litteral as the person who was uploading the child pornography, and an employee of the United States Secret Service.  He was arrested after a search warrant was served at his home.  Electronic devices were discovered and removed from the home and are being forensically examined.

The U.S. Secret Service, who assisted Maryland State Police in Litteral’s arrest, said in a statement that the allegations were intolerable and reported that he has been placed on administrative leave and his security clearance has been suspended.

The investigation into Litteral is ongoing, so more charges are possible.
