A McAllen-based DEA agent is arrested by the FBI for allegedly viewing child pornography.
FBI agents raided James Patrick Burke’s residence on Friday. Investigators say Burke accessed pictures depicting children as young as 10-years-old, engaging in sexual intercourse with adults back in February. The criminal complaint states that Burke waived his Miranda rights and admitted to have viewed the files from several websites online off his laptop computer. Burke has been placed on administrative leave and is scheduled for another hearing on Thursday.
