THE BRONX - A Bronx man who worked as a federal immigration agent was arrested for allegedly demanding sex from a Colombian woman in exchange for a green card.

The victim says she recorded a conversation with Isaac Baichu outside a Queens restaurant in December 2007. Baichu is accused of forcing her to perform oral sex and threatening to hold up her application. Authorities say he also threatened to deport her or her relatives if she didn?t comply.

The victim used her cell phone hidden in her purse to record the encounter and gave it to authorities. Baichu was arrested after meeting with the woman again on March 11, this time with prosecutors listening in.

Baichu faces misdemeanor charges of coercion and sexual misconduct and a felony charge of receiving a reward for official misconduct.

The Queens District Attorney?s Office issued a statement calling the victim courageous. Anyone who may have been victimized is urged to contact the DA?s office at 718-286-6545.AP wire reports contributed to this article
