ICE Officer Charged With Sexual Battery On Child

HOMESTEAD (CBS4)- A deportation officer was relieved of his duties pending an investigation into a sexual assault case of a 16-year-old girl.

According to the Miami Beach Police Department, 50-year-old Neil Julien is accused of sexually assaulting his former girlfriend's 16-year-old daughter during the summer of 2005, from May to August. At the time, Julien was the woman's live in boyfriend, police said.

Julien, employed by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) at the Krome Detention Center, later separated from the woman.

In 2010, Julien was arrested on an unrelated case for domestic battery that occurred in Pembroke Pines.  At that time, the victim disclosed that Julien sexually assaulted her.

Julien was arrested in the area of his home with assistance from the US Marshalls Fugitive Task Force and later booked into the Miami-Dade County Pre-Trial Detention Center.

He was charged with two counts of sexual battery on a child under 12 years of age.  The charge has no bond.
