A top US Marshals official currently under investigation for allegedly sleeping with a junior colleague now stands accused of pawning off his post-graduate program homework to his subordinates, The Post has learned.

Multiple law-enforcement sources outed the Marshals bigwig as Andrew Smith, the assistant director of the Tactical Operations Division — while revealing more details about the alleged romp at the agency’s Virginia headquarters.

The Marshals Service is probing Smith for allegedly getting underlings to do his homework assignments while attending a post-graduate program at the Naval War College, according to sources and a letter reviewed by The Post.

The anonymous letter — signed by a “concerned colleague” — was sent to the Rhode Island college’s registrar’s office in June, said a source with knowledge of the message.

“I am writing to inform you a U.S. Marshals Service employee and Naval War College student, Andrew Smith, is under an internal investigation for tasking subordinates to complete class assignments, which he submitted to the Naval War College as his own work,” the letter states.

“Our agency mantra is Justice, Integrity, Service. If true this allegation is a complete failure of integrity,” it adds.

Smith is already facing an internal agency probe for allegedly having sex with a coworker in his office in Arlington, Va., which was previously reported by The Post.

New details about the alleged rendezvous reveal Smith and the woman, described as a “senior”-ranking marshal, hooked up in the late afternoon in July on a couch in his office, the sources said.

Other Marshals employees who were on the floor outside of Smith’s office — which has glass walls with frosted windows — allegedly heard the hot-and-heavy session and may have recorded it on their cellphones, according to law-enforcement sources.

Internal affairs launched a probe — and Smith went on extended family medical leave, sources said. He is not expected to return to work until mid-November.

In his position, Smith oversees the Marshals crisis response programs and national security and contingency programs, according to an online flier for a training presentation he was set to give in January.

According to sources, Smith is eligible for retirement next month and may dodge any discipline — and receive full retirement benefits — if he leaves the agency before the internal review is complete.

Current and former US Marshals said it would be a bad look if Smith — a member of the Senior Executive Service, the highest level of the Marshals Service — escaped any consequences for his alleged behavior.

“Where is the justice when someone like Smith is allowed to run out the clock and retire unscathed, while rank-and-file deputies accused of far less indiscretions are punished and fired with absolute disregard?” one law-enforcement source griped to The Post.

“Justice and Integrity should have one standard for all top to bottom and it should be a standard that the Americans they [serve] are proud of,” they added.

A former US Marshal echoed the sentiment.

“The U.S. Marshals Service seems to have a two-class system for meting out discipline — one for executives, one for the rank and file. History shows that violative executives are able to retire in lieu of disciplinary action while the rank and file suffer more harsh penalties,” they said.

“If the facts here prove true, the most serious consequences should apply, not only for the alleged conduct, but equally for the betrayal of trust in upholding one of the three cornerstones of the storied Agency’s motto — integrity,” they added.

Marshals’ spokesperson Drew Wade would not comment on the specific allegations against Smith, only saying, “all credible allegations are investigated and appropriate disciplinary actions are taken, if warranted.”

The Naval War College referred questions to the Marshals.

Smith could not be reached for comment.

A message sent to his work email generated an automated response.

“I am out of the office on extended family medical leave expected to return mid-November,” it states.
