The Daily Caller reports that a prosecution has been declined for an Assistant US Attorney (AUSA) who exposed his genitals, forced someone to touch them and then lied about the incident. Federal prosecutors declined to criminally charge an Assistant U.S. Attorney found to have “lacked candor” about publicly exposing their genitals and sexually assaulting a civilian on a date.
As reported by The Daily Caller, the Department of Justice (DOJ) Inspector General’s Office announced Monday that its investigation had determined the unnamed Assistant U.S. Attorney exposed their genitals in a public place and forced the civilian to touch them, violating state law and federal off-duty conduct rules. The attorney was found to have “lacked candor in discussing this incident” with the office. What are the consequences for such behavior? Nothing. Criminal prosecution was declined.
The report continued: “The Inspector General’s Office said it sent the Executive Office for the United States Attorneys and DOJ Office of Professional Responsibility its report on the matter for appropriate action. Assistant U.S. attorneys work in the offices of U.S. Attorneys, who prosecute federal crimes.
“Unless otherwise noted, the Office of Inspector General (OIG) applies the preponderance of the evidence standard in determining whether Department of Justice personnel have committed misconduct,” the Inspector General’s Office added. Notable is that the legal standard of “preponderance of the evidence” is a low and lax standard, much less daunting than, for example, proof beyond a reasonable doubt. The OIG claims the evidence could not meet that low standard.
The DOJ inspector general found an assistant US attorney exposed his or her genitals on a date and committed sexual assault.
"Criminal prosecution…was declined."
