JACKSONVILLE, ONSLOW COUNTY - An Onslow County man accused of luring a Marine into a home and coercing the victim to perform a sex act appeared in court Thursday on a slew of new charges.
Patrick Francois Earl Georges, 24, faced a judge Thursday morning on four counts of crime against nature and five counts of extortion. His bond remains at $120,000 and his next court date is scheduled for Jan. 23 with a court-appointed attorney.
Georges first made headlines after he was arrested on Dec. 25 for allegedly pretending to be a woman on MeetMe.com to lure a Camp Lejeune Marine into Georges' home on King Street in Jacksonville. Georges then accused that Marine of breaking into the home, and threatened to call police if the Marine didn't perform a sex act with Georges, police said. That Marine said he eventually complied.
Georges was charged with one count each of crime against nature and extortion for that incident (CLICK HERE to read more).
But new warrants from the Jacksonville Police Department allege that Georges was involved in five other incidents between March and December.
The first incident happened on March 30, when Georges allegedly committed a "detestable crime against nature" on a 20-year-old victim, according to the warrants. The suspect also allegedly obtained $250 from the victim by accusing that victim of breaking into the home, and threatening to call police if the victim didn't comply.
Then on May 12, Georges allegedly committed another crime against nature involving a 19-year-old, the warrants stated. The suspect again obtained $250 from the victim by accusing the victim of breaking into the home, according to the warrants.
Georges is accused of another extortion incident involving a 21-year-old on May 15, the warrants stated. Georges allegedly used the same tactic as in the previous incidents to obtain $200 from the victim.
A few months later, on Nov. 14, Georges was involved in yet another crime against nature, the warrants continued. The victim was a 19-year-old. Georges was also able to obtain $350 from the victim by once again accusing the victim of breaking into the the home, according to the warrants.
Finally on Dec. 25, Georges allegedly committed a crime against nature on a 20-year-old victim, the warrants stated. In addition, the suspect allegedly obtained $500 from the victim by using the same threat as in the previous incidents.
The new warrants did not state if the latest victims are Marines. The warrants also did not mention if the suspect used MeetMe.com to allegedly lure them in.
Georges, who had previously bonded out of jail, is back behind bars under a $120,000 bond.
In addition to the Jacksonville Police Department, the Naval Criminal Investigative Service is looking into the case.
