Imprisoned Ex-Defense Contractor Facing Sex Abuse Charges

A former U.S. Defense Department contractor imprisoned for national security crimes is facing new charges of sexually abusing underage girls overseas.

Miami federal prosecutors said Tuesday an indictment charges 36-year-old Christopher Rennie Glenn with sex trafficking conspiracy, sexual assault of minors and similar offenses. Prosecutors say the crimes were committed while Glenn worked at a Honduras air base as a contract network systems administrator.

Glenn is serving a 10-year prison sentence for illegally copying and keeping classified U.S. defense-related email files from the Honduran base.

The new charges claim Glenn recruited girls from Honduran villages to work as housekeepers by offering to pay their families significant amounts of money. Prosecutors say the girls were sexually assaulted and sometimes given sedative drugs.

Glenn's attorney didn't immediately respond to an email seeking comment.
