Marine Facing Prison Time For Sex Charges

We're gathering details on a Camp Lejeune Marine who pleaded guilty to soliciting sex with a minor.

John Leone was arrested in June after a three month investigation when he talked to whom he thought was a 14-year-old girl online, but the Wilmington Star news reports, she was actually a Pender County detective. The paper says the 24-year-old traveled from Camp Lejeune to Pender County to meet the girl. According to the paper Leone has been sentenced to four and a half years in prison. He'll also receive a bad conduct discharge from the Marine Corps and must register as a sex offender.
