POLICE: Marine Charged In Underage Sex Sting

A Camp Lejeune Marine is in jail, after Greenville police say he wanted to have sex with a 12-year-old who he met online.

Corporal Nicholas Weidner is charged with soliciting a child by computer. He's in jail on a $50,000 bond.

Police say the 22-year-old Weidner had more than one online chat with someone he thought was a 12-year-old girl. Police say he was arrested Friday when the Marine approached Elm Street park which was the pre-arranged meeting place. Police say he intended to have sex with the girl.

Greenville police say this is their first arrest as part of the North Carolina Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force, which the city joined just three moths ago.
