An agent with the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has been arrested on numerous sexual assault charges.
David Harris was apprehended in Ascension Parish by Louisiana State Police on June 24. The 51-year-old was booked on charges of aggravated crimes against nature and indecent behavior with children under the age of 13.
When he’s released from Ascension Parish Jail, Harris will be booked on several outstanding warrants in Orleans Parish and East Baton Rouge Parish. Those charges include sexual battery, attempted third-degree rape, aggravated crimes against nature, indecent behavior with juveniles, obscenity and witness intimidation.
Authorities received a complaint in February 2021 about Harris’s alleged sexual wrongdoing involving multiple victims, both adult and juvenile, across several areas in Louisiana. Police didn’t provide an exact number of victims.
The U.S. Department of Justice Office of the Inspector General and state police uncovered evidence of multiple alleged criminal acts going as far back as 2016. After a joint investigation, authorities obtained warrants out of four jurisdictions in Louisana.
At the time of the investigation, Harris was a member of the FBI New Orleans Field Office.
