There is new information in search warrants obtained by WITN News in the case of a Camp Lejeune Marine accused of videotaping teens having sex inside his home, even having sex with at least one of them.
36 year old Staff Sergeant Christopher Oden was arrested Friday after authorities say he had a party at his Hubert home in November. Deputies say he supplied alcohol to 6 teenagers, got them drunk, and encouraged them to engage in sexual activity, even joining in himself.
Search warrants show there were two boys at the home, and four girls during the night of the party. Warrants say Oden told one girl several days after the party that he had sex with her because he got drunk, and asked that she not tell anyone because it would jeopardize his career. That 13-year-old girl told deputies she had never had sex before.
Search warrants also show many items seized from Oden's home. They include multiple computers, video cameras, 71 color photos, a torn up note, VCR tapes, towels, bed sheets, women's underwear and a mattress top and cover.
Oden is in the Onslow County jail under a $110,000 bond. He faces a statutory rape charge, sex offenses with minor charges, indecent liberties and contributing to a delinquency of a minor.
