Colleagues call him a “skilled predator”
A woman brought a ruler to the FBI headquarters and hit James Hendricks near her legs and chest. Hendricks pulled her ears and kissed her on the cheek during a closed-door meeting, and the other shook his head.
When Hendricks became Director of the Office of the FBI in Albany, New York in 2018, he was described by his colleagues as a “skilled predator”. He looked at women in the workplace lustfully and touched them improperly. , Even asking them to have sex. According to a federal report recently released by the Associated Press, in the conference room.
After the Office of the Inspector General of the Department of Justice discovered that he had sexually harassed eight subordinates in one of the most serious cases of behavior, Hendricks quietly retired last year as a special agent, which shocked the FBI.
Hendricks was one of several senior bureau officials appointed in an Associated Press investigation last year and found that even after the allegations were confirmed, there were supervisors who escaped disciplinary action and retired in full.
The FBI stated that it was unable to discuss the Hendricks case, but it adheres to a “zero tolerance policy for sexual harassment and is committed to creating a safe working environment where all our employees are valued, protected and respected.”
Hendricks, 50, now blogs about public order, but he did not respond to messages seeking comment. He told investigators that his accuser had misunderstood or exaggerated his behavior, and that he was not sexually attracted.
