A Border Patrol agent working at the Ajo Border crossing station in Pima County, AZ was taken into custody two weeks ago on a fugitive warrant issued for suspicion of lewd acts with a minor. The alleged offense took place in Imperial County, CA in 2013.
29-year-old Supervisory Agent Kyle Mrofka was detained by Pima County Sheriff’s Deputies on September 29. He remains in Pima County jail without bond awaiting extradition to Imperial County, CA where he is charged with two counts of lewd acts for alleged sexual contact with a child age 14 or 15 when he was at least 10 years older. The identity of the victim is being withheld.
The Tucson Sector public affairs office issued a statement announcing that Mrofka, a 9-year employee of the federal border enforcement agency, has been put on indefinite unpaid suspension awaiting the outcome of the investigation.
Regarding their position on the charges the spokesperson said, “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.”
According to court records Mrofka has a scheduled review hearing in Pima County Superior Court on November 2. The bond awaiting him in Imperial County has been set at $75,000.
