A man who was a Marine Corps family readiness officer is accused of raping a 16-year-old girl.
Craven County authorities say Eric Grussing was arrested Friday on charges of statutory rape and disseminating obscene material to a minor.
The 40-year-old Grussing was a family readiness officer for Marine Wing Communications Squadron 28 at Cherry Point, but the air station says he is no longer in that position. A family readiness officer is a civilian liaison between the unit's command and families of Marines in that unit.
Grussing went before a judge Tuesday morning and he's being held on a $250,000 secured bond.
