Wednesday, July 18, 2018

In another Investigative Summary issued today by the Office of the Inspector General findings of misconduct by a U.S. Marshal for engaging in retaliatory behavior against a subordinate are revealed.

The summary reads as follows:

Finding of Misconduct by a U.S. Marshal for Engaging in Retaliatory Behavior Towards a Subordinate

The Department of Justice Office of the Inspector General (OIG) initiated this investigation upon the receipt of information from the United States Marshals Service (USMS) alleging that a United States Marshal (USM) exhibited intimidating and retaliatory behavior towards a subordinate in response to the subordinate’s report of misconduct involving the USM. In an earlier investigation, the OIG substantiated the subordinate’s report of misconduct by the USM.

The OIG investigation found that the USM also engaged in the retaliatory misconduct as alleged by improperly requesting access to the subordinate’s work emails, in violation of USMS policy and codes of professional responsibility.

The OIG has completed its investigation and provided a report to the USMS. The subject is no longer serving as the USM.
