A man police say is accused of luring local Marines back to his house for sexual encounters went before a judge Thursday morning.
Jacksonville police say 24-year-old Patrick Georges is now charged with five counts of crimes against nature and six counts of extortion. Georges, who lives on King Street in Jacksonville, was arrested Tuesday without incident.
There are now a total of six victims, five which claim Georges tricked them into sexual acts.
Georges went before a District Court judge, who kept his bond at $120,000 and gave him a court-appointed attorney. The man's next court date is January 23rd.
Court documents say in one case, the Marine victim told police he met who he thought was a woman on the website Meetme.com, and they agreed to meet at a home on King Street.
The victim said he arrived at the home as he continued to text with the person. That person told him to come inside as the door was unlocked, and the victim sat on the couch.
The victim told police Georges came into the home and accused him of breaking into the house. The Marine told police that Georges said if they engaged in oral sex he would not call police.
Police say this case is still an active and open investigation. NCIS is assisting as more victims come forward.
