US Agents Got Bonuses Despite Sex-Party Allegations

Ten U.S. agents alleged to have participated in sex parties with prostitutes in Colombia received bonuses and other awards, despite an investigation into their actions, the Justice Department said Thursday.

The Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) came under intense criticism after a report from the Inspector General of the Justice Department, which houses the DEA, said in March that DEA agents attended orgies with prostitutes they should have known were hired by a drug cartel.

The sex parties reportedly took place in Colombia over the course of several years.
