A Camp Lejeune Marine is accused of a sex crime against another male Marine.
Sgt. Kyle Mullinax of Sneads Ferry is in jail after being charged with second degree sexual offense.
Onslow County deputies say on July 27th the 23-year-old Mullinax hosted a party at his home for other Marines in his unit. The 19-year-old victim, who is a Private First Class, told authorities he fell asleep and awoke to find Mullinax "touching him inappropriately", according to a news release.
The Marine victim left with other friends and reported what had happened to his military command and to deputies.
Mullinax's bond was set at $100,000.
