A federal judge on Wednesday issued an arrest warrant for Puerto Rico's education secretary before withdrawing the warrant in exchange for documents related to a federal investigation, Puerto Rico's Department of Education told the Associated Press.


The department also told the AP that the documents stem from an investigation into a school tutoring program and are from 2011 to 2013.

The current education secretary, Julia Keleher, was appointed to the position in December of 2016.

Lymarie Llovet, a spokeswoman for the U.S. Attorney’s office, confirmed to the AP that an arrest warrant had been issued but declined to provide further details.
