Lawsuit accuses federal agent of sexual assault

By Associated Press

HONOLULU (AP) A Hawaii woman who ran an escort service alleges in a civil lawsuit that a federal agent entrapped her in a methamphetamine case, forced her to be his informant and sexually assaulted her.

The lawsuit filed in state court in March alleges that a special agent for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement arranged a drug deal that led to the woman's arrest. The lawsuit says that after her arrest, the agent told her she could avoid incarceration at Honolulu's Federal Detention Center if she acted as his informant.

The lawsuit also claims the agent sexually assaulted her and forced her to live with a convicted felon to get information that could lead to his arrest.

An Immigration and Customs Enforcement spokeswoman says the agency doesn't comment on pending litigation.
