DOJ Official Breached Ethics Rules Playing Golf

Berke said that to his client's knowledge, the hiring of Mr. Fonseca and the execution of his contract were done through proper channels consistent with federal law, regulation, and DOJ policy. "He did not consider Mr. Fonseca's contract to be a personal services contract," said Berke.

In an email obtained by ABC News, Fonseca said farewell to his colleagues in July of 2007, saying "It is my hope and prayer that the job and peace of Jesus Christ will be real to each one of you."

Fonseca could not immediately be reached for comment on this story and the OJJDP did not wish to provide comment for this story.
