A 46-year-old FBI agent who lives in Carroll County posted an additional $100,000 bail Wednesday to remain free after he was served with a 22-count indictment accusing him of sexually abusing his four daughters and one of their friends.
The agent, who worked in the FBI's Baltimore field office, posted $25,000 bail on Dec. 24 on three abuse charges that were filed Dec. 3.
He was in the Carroll County Detention Center from Dec. 3 until Dec. 24 but was freed after posting bail.
The indictment, returned by a Carroll grand jury Dec. 17, detailed abuse of all of his daughters, beginning when each was about age 5 and ending when they were in their mid-teens.
The man was served with the indictment after surrendering to state police yesterday afternoon.
As part of his pre-trial release, the man was ordered by Circuit Judge Francis M. Arnold to avoid any contact with any female under the age of 21.
According to the indictment, the man -- whose name is being withheld to protect the privacy of his daughters -- fondled the girls' genitals, forced them to masturbate him and, in some cases, to have sexual intercourse with him.
The agent was placed on administrative leave with pay after he was arrested Dec. 3, an FBI spokesman said.
