A man who works for the Federal Bureau of Investigation has been arrested and charged with molesting multiple children, according to local news reports from Salt Lake City, Utah.
Robert Alexander Smith, 65, faces four 1st-degree felony counts of aggravated sexual abuse of a child, four class-A misdemeanor counts of lewdness involving a child, and two class-B misdemeanor counts of lewdness.
Smith was arrested after a young girl, believed to be six or seven at the time, told her mother that he forced her to inappropriately touch him underneath his clothes in 2020.
Smith, a resident of Utah, allegedly had inappropriate interactions with at least four other girls ranging in age from pre-teen to high-school.

He allegedly forced one of the girls to touch him in the same way as the other victim, and the three other girls said Smith had touched them inappropriately under their clothing.
The alleged abuse took place at Smith’s home in Stansbury Park at the time, though he now resides in Tooele.
Court documents emphasized that Smith “occupied a position of special trust as it pertains to the victims in this case.”
Smith was arrested on August 24th and charged in court the following day. He was ordered to be held without bail.
Responding to the arrest, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) offered the following statement and referred the matter to its Internal Affairs department:
“We are aware of the arrest of an FBI employee. The FBI takes allegations of misconduct very seriously. As such, the incident has been referred to the FBI’s Internal Affairs Section. We cannot comment further on an ongoing personnel matter.”
Smith’s case follows the arrest and indictment of several high-profile politicians for grooming and molesting children. The Biden White House has also appointed individuals with a history of defending underage sex work to high-level positions within agencies including the Department of Energy.
President Joe Biden himself has unanswered questions about his conduct with minors, underscored by his own Justice Department effectively confirming the authenticity of a diary written by his daughter Ashley, where she claims Biden made her shower with him when she was a child.
The news also comes in the same week that FBI Special Agent Timothy Thibault was escorted out of the Washington, D.C. field office after allegedly using his privileged position to cover up the investigation of Hunter Biden’s laptop, effectively helping to swing the 2020 election in Joe Biden’s favor.
