WILMINGTON, Delaware (AP) — A federal magistrate in Delaware is holding a hearing for a Secret Service officer charged with trying to solicit a 14-year-old girl for sex.

Lee Robert Moore, who is being represented by a public defender, was to appear Thursday at a hearing where prosecutors will ask that he be held in custody until his trial.

He also faces separate state charges of sexual solicitation of a child under 18 and providing obscene material to a minor, which will be resolved after the federal court case.

Moore surrendered to authorities in Maryland on Nov. 9 after officials say he was caught in an undercover online sex sting by Delaware State Police.
