    this is so sad.where is this "child" in the whole story.she is the one who got in the car,shes the one whom may have lied about her age.why judge this young man before knowing all the facts?they may never be told but to say hang him or put him under the jail take some time a reflect on what your all honesty no one here knows what happened and may never know what is young,he did make a mistake but why leave him to dry.and i agree 100% with mom of a Marine lots of woman in Jacksonville are out to get something from the Marines.I know i have lived there for 4 years and i know how it goes.seen to may Marines get the bank accounts wiped out from some girl.where were these girls parents and why do they let her run the streets.its called parental control and supervision.maybe the too should be getting judged for the poor actions and supervision!

    All of you should be ashamed for assuming the worst. I went to school with Caleb and though we weren't close, I know that he is better than this and DID NOT purposely pursue an under aged girl. Ask anyone who knows him, he obviously was not aware of this girl's real age, she OBVIOUSLY lied to him about it. His intentions with a minor would have been completely innocent, so do not pass judgment on him. The media likes to blow things out of proportion, and Caleb simply got caught up in a bad situation, it happens to the best of us. You should be ashamed for being so easily influenced by the opinions of others that you would say he should be hung, SHAME ON YOU. He is innocent.

    Learn the facts before you judge this Marine. I know him and he's not a child molester. The "child" was an older looking 15 year old who lied about her age, not a 10 year old. The "kidnapping" was her riding in a car with him. Yes, he should have been smarter and checked her age. Under the UCMJ its 16 and NC, 17 I believe but now this Marine who is willing to risk his like for his country and OUR freedom is behing bars. His career just went down the drain and he's facing a long time in jail. So stop saying he should be hung from a tree.

    Hey!The law is the law PERIOD!!!!!! if she (or he)is under age then that's all the judge needs to know for punishment.The law says 17, not 16yrs 11mos.and 29days.GET IT! If he is smart enough to join the MARINES then he should have known about messing around with minors,Period!!!!

    Too many women in the Jacksonville area are preying upon young men in hopes of securing their bank accounts/pay check. It could be this "child" is 16 1/2 and wanting to "marry" a marine to get away from mommy and daddy. On the other hand it could really be a child. Before we hang this man out to dry, let's get the facts. Perfect example of missing facts is the Duke Lacrosse game. Even now people still "think" they are guilty and she is "innocent". We spend so much time wasting the tidbits of information in newspaper that the facts get lost in the shuffle. At this point it doesn't matter what age she is; his life as a Marine and as a young man is ruined. He will be tossed out of the Corp., and will have a sex offender registry created, even if she was about to turn 17 and consented.
