PROVO — Three Secret Service agents were investigated for sexually assaulting some college students in Utah just prior to the 2002 Olympics, according to police reports.

The reports, obtained by the Daily Herald, say the agents allegedly called out to three Utah Valley State College students from their car in Provo on Jan. 28, 2002. The reports say the agents and the girls went to a restaurant, then to the agents' hotel rooms. Two days later the agents invited the students back to the hotel, which eventually led to drinking games.

The girls told Provo police that on the last visit they were sexually assaulted.

The police reports show Provo investigators recommended charges against all three agents but only one, identified as Daniel "Todd" Cranor, ended up getting charged with a misdemeanor for disorderly conduct. According to the Herald, he was convicted and sentenced to 30 hours of community service.

Investigators had recommended that Cranor face one count of forcible sexual abuse, one count of disorderly conduct and one count of supplying alcohol to a minor.

The agents were transferred out of Utah when the girls notified police, the report states.
