Caught On Tape: Police Arrest Marine They Say Is Sex Predator

The 23-year-old Cherry Point marine from Havelock was arrested in Morehead City Thursday after police say he showed up to meet who he thought was a fifteen year old girl, for sex. Morehead City police say they have been posing as a teen and talking online to Justin Billingsley for a month. They say Billingsley, online, talked in explicit terms about the sexual activity he wanted to engage in with her, even sending pornographic pictures of himself to whom he thought was an underage girl. Billingsley is charged with solicitation of a child by computer to commit an unlawful sex act and disseminating pornography to a minor under the age of 16.
