Arizona Border Patrol agent arrested for lewd acts with child

Posted: Updated:

AJO, Ariz. - An Arizona Border Patrol agent was arrested for lewd acts with a child. 

Agent Kyle Mrofka, 29, was arrested by Pima County Sheriff's Deputies at the Ajo Border Patrol station on Sept. 29, according to Pima County Sheriff's Deputy Cody Gress. 

The charges were filed by the Imperial County Sheriff's Office in California. Lieutenant Jimmy Duran said the charges stemmed from an incident that occurred in 2013 at the Picacho State Recreation Area and involved a 14-year-old. 

The Tucson Sector Border Patrol office told News 4 Tucson: 

"The agent has 9 years of service with the U.S. Border Patrol and is presently on a non-duty/non-pay status pending the outcome of the investigation.

The U.S. Border Patrol stresses honor and integrity in every aspect of its mission.  We do not tolerate misconduct on or off duty and will fully cooperate with all investigations of alleged unlawful conduct by our personnel."

Mrofka is being held in Pima County Jail without bond on charges of lewd and lascivious acts. He is expected to be extradited back to California. 

Mrofka is scheduled to appear in front of a Pima County Superior Court judge on Nov. 2 for a extradition hearing.

A new study shows the most social dolphins and whales also have larger, more complex brains. It’s the latest study supporting the idea that big brains evolved to handle the demands of socializing, and not for some other reason. In other words, humans may be so intelligent because we gossip. “What we can say for sure with the dolphins and whales ...
