WICHITA, KS (AP) -

Newly released court documents show an agent with the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement is facing federal charges after a Wichita television news anchor told local police that he was sending her sensitive law enforcement material and texting messages that were sexual in nature.

A probable cause affidavit made public Monday says KAKE-TV anchor Deb Farris met in March with police who photographed about 185 screenshots of text messages between her and ICE Agent Andrew J. Pleviak.

Farris told The Associated Press Tuesday that Pleviak came to her asking to be her source and texted things that made her uncomfortable and scared.

Pleviak was indicted in July on two counts of exceeding authorized access to a government computer and one count of destruction of records.

His attorney declined to comment.
