A former guest has recently come under fire by a former student of ex DEA agent Jefferey Prather.  Jefferey is of course innocent until proven guilty. 





The quote below was taken from an article back in 2015. 

“It’s next to impossible to get fired from the US Drug Enforcement Administration, official records show. Since 2010 agents have escaped with warnings or brief suspensions after distributing drugs, attending sex parties, associating with criminals and falsifying records.
Of the 50 employees the DEA’s Board of Professional Conduct recommended be fired following misconduct investigations opened since 2010, only 13 were eventually terminated, the records indicate. But after a federal appeals board intervened the drug agency was forced to take some of them back, it turned out.

“If we conducted an investigation, and an employee actually got terminated, I’d be surprised,” a former DEA internal affairs investigator, Carl Pike, told USA Today. “I’d be truly, truly surprised. Like, wow, the system actually got this guy.”

The DEA has long faced criticism for how it handles misconduct by its 11,000 employees. This spring, the Justice Department said it had “serious concerns” about the discipline meted out to six agents who left a handcuffed college student in a holding cell for five days with no food or water. Two of the agents received brief suspensions; four others were given letters of reprimand. The student, Daniel Chong, won a $4.1 million settlement.

Years before that, the Justice Department’s inspector general faulted the DEA for imposing “penalties that appear to be too lenient.”

But never has the criticism been more pointed than in March, when the inspector general revealed that DEA agents had attended “sex parties” while posted in Colombia. The agents received suspensions of between two and 10 days. Two weeks later, exasperated lawmakers pressed the DEA’s administrator, Michele Leonhart, on why she hadn’t fired them. Federal law doesn’t allow it, she replied.

“If somebody murdered somebody, could you fire him?” asked Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C.

“If someone murdered someone, there would be criminal charges, and that’s how they would be fired,” she said.

Leonhart resigned a week later. She could not be reached for comment.

Then-Attorney General Eric Holder ordered the Justice Department’s own internal ethics watchdog to conduct a “systematic review” of DEA’s disciplinary process in April. (That office also has faced criticism for being too soft on misconduct.) Spokesman Patrick Rodenbush said the review is ongoing.

The DEA’s internal affairs log shows investigators review more than 200 cases each year and often clear the agents involved. When they do find wrongdoing, the most common outcome is a either a letter of caution — the lightest form of discipline the agency can impose — or a brief unpaid suspension.

Another agent, Jeffrey Prather, was fired after admitting he let civilians use “DEA-issued fully automatic weapons” as part of a security training business he had set up, according to merit board records. The board also concluded that Prather, who it said established his own religion, had persuaded “vulnerable and struggling women” to have sex with him “by telling them they would be ‘healed’” if they did.

Prather said the case against him “was a witch hunt.”

Still another agent was fired after admitting that he crashed his government vehicle after a night of drinking and gambling in the Bahamas then repeatedly lied to his supervisors about it. In his defense, the agent told the merit board he was still “under the effects of the alcohol” when he lied to his supervisors in Miami 30 hours later.”
