MIAMI (WBOC/AP)- An ex-Secret Service agent from Queen Anne's County, Md. who pleaded guilty to enticing a teenage girl to engage in sexual activity has been sentenced to 20 years in prison. 
    
A West Palm Beach, Fla. federal judge on Thursday handed down the sentence against 38-year-old Lee Robert Moore of Church Hill, Maryland.

The judge also ordered Moore to be on supervised probation for the rest of his life following the completion of his prison sentence. 

Prosecutors said Moore maintained a profile on a social media site called "Meet24." Delaware State Police detectives posed there as a 14-year-old girl. Investigators found Moore also communicated inappropriately with real underage girls in Florida, Texas and Missouri.

The married former U.S. Marine was assigned to the White House as a uniformed Secret Service agent when he was arrested in 2015. He pleaded guilty to enticing a minor to engage in sexual activity and attempting to send obscene material to a minor.

His wife asked for leniency, citing their two children.
