Cosper Charged With Rape

There's new information today about a Camp Lejeune Marine who deputies say committed sexual offenses on a young relative.

Onslow County deputies say Staff Sergeant Dustin Cosper is now charged with second degree forcible rape and incest between near relatives.

Cosper was arrested earlier this month and charged with one count of second degree sexual offense, felony secret peeping and one count of a crime against nature.

Court documents say deputies seized a camera card from Cosper's home that they says contained images of child porn and evidence of additional crimes.

The victim told authorities that Cosper had been drinking and then after she fell asleep he removed her clothes and took pictures of her body.

Cosper's wife Marie is charged with accessory after the fact, common-law obstruction of justice, giving liquor to someone under 21 and contributing to the delinquency of a juvenile.

Dustin Cosper is an electronic maintenance technician, assigned to the 2nd Radio Battalion, 2nd Marine Expeditionary Unit.
