WHATCOM COUNTY, Wash. -- A high-ranking official of the U.S. Border Patrol is accused of having sexual relations with a 14-year-old girl.

Deputy Chief Patrol Agent Joseph Giuliano, 55, has been charged with three counts of rape of a child in the third degree.

Investigators first learned of the alleged abuse on Monday when they received an anonymous call from Bellingham High School. They discovered the victim had told her peers about the incidents.

The victim later told detectives she had, in fact, been involved with Giuliano. She said they arranged meeting times by communicating through text messages. The two met in his car, in her bed and at his house, she said.

When questioned by detectives, Giuliano admitted to having had sexual intercourse with the victim on at least 24 different occasions, according to the statement of probable cause. He said their relationship began in April of 2008 and continued until recently.

The victim is not related to Giuliano, who is married.

Giuliano, as the deputy chief of the Border Patrol's Blaine sector, oversees duties in Alaska, Oregon and Western Washington.
