UPDATE: Second Marine claims to be victim in sex extortion case

Saturday, December 28th, 2013

JACKSONVILLE, NC (WCTI12.com) — A second Camp Lejeune Marine is claiming to be a victim of a Jacksonville man already charged for allegedly coercing one Marine into performing sex acts. 

WCTI-TV spoke with the first young Camp Lejeune Marine, whose identity will not be released due to the nature of the alleged crime. The Marine said he is not the first victim of the suspect, 24-year-old Patrick Francois Georges, who has been charged with extortion and crime against nature.

"He was an expert at this. This wasn't his first rodeo," the Marine said.

According to warrants from the Jacksonville Police Department, the investigation began when the Marine told officers Wednesday that he had met a person he thought was a female on the social networking site, MeetMe.com. The Marine said he agreed to meet this person at a home on King Street in Jacksonville.
