Customs Agent Charged With Rape For Alleged Off-Duty Attack

WESTMINSTER (CBS) — A U.S. Customs and Border Protection agent has been charged with rape and other sex counts for an alleged off-duty attack.

Miguel Lerma Jr., 31, of Fountain Valley, is charged with rape, forced sodomy, forced oral copulation and rape by use of drugs, according to court records.

Lerma, who was arrested last Thursday, is scheduled to be arraigned Monday afternoon at the West Justice Center in Westminster.

Lerma is accused of picking up a 20-year-old woman on Harbor Boulevard on Nov. 14 and sexually assaulting her.

Authorities allege that DNA evidence links Lerma to the attack and to another unrelated case in Long Beach in 2009.

    I say for all of those “Cold Unsolved Cases”, law enforcement officers should be tested and we’ll see how many of those “cold cases” get closed.

    That’s a great idea actually.All cop’s should be forced to take a DNA test.If they decline,fire them.Police are not above the law,you see it everyday all the time.And im sure that they would get some hits,and then start investigating all the wrongfull police shootings.Too many dirty cops.Way too many.

      AMEN to that… they also brake the law. They over speed knowing they can get away if they get caught. Use the siren for no good reason just to get to the donut shop faster.
