Secret Service agents patrol the White House on April 21, 2012 and the surrounding grounds amid a growing prostitution scandal that began in Cartagena, Colombia during a presidential trip.

A federal investigation has found the President's security was not compromised as a result of a Secret Service prostitution scandal.

You may remember, back in April -- several Secret Service agents were accused of hiring prostitutes while on duty with President Obama in Colombia.

The Department of Homeland Security launched an investigation and now says there is no evidence the agents placed the President in harm's way.

Prostitution is legal in Colombia, but the incident led to punishment for several Secret Service agents.

Of the 13 agents implicated in the scandal, nine have resigned or are in the process of being terminated.

The other four were cleared and returned to duty.
