NCIS Assists Stone County Authorities In Marines Arrest For Sexual Misconduct With A Minor:

Christopher Allen Downs (SCSO)

Stone County Prosecutor Matt Selby has charged a United States Marine with an Internet sex crime.

Sheriff Richard Hill says an investigation into Christopher Allen Downs, 26, of Seattle, began on April 27th after the man allegedly sent nude photos of himself to an undercover deputy posing as a teenager.

Downs, was serving in the United States Marine Corps and stationed in Camp Lejeune, North Carolina when the investigation began. He was deployed to Okinawa, and arrested as he returned from duty in Seattle on December 17th.
 
Stone County deputies worked closely with NCIS to locate Downs and have him returned back to the states to face charges.  He is being held in Washington on $15,000 bond pending extradition to Missouri

I was stationed with this person in Okinawa Japan, and this is not at all a surprise. He had a job that put him in contact with every single marine that came to Okinawa, where he tried to sleep with every young female marine that arrived on island.

"Tim", why do you sound like a predator-panic freak trying to promote anti-male internet entrapment as legitimate law enforcement. He was innocent until the corrupt net cop enticed him to commit a false crime against a false victim that doesn't exist - a false crime he otherwise wouldn't have the opportunity to commit.

Sexual misconduct with a minor? False charge. He didn't engage in sexual conduct with a minor - he sent nude photos to an an adult impersonating a minor.

Regardless of whether or not it was an adult impersonating as a minor, he was still under the belief that it WAS a MINOR. Then sending lude photographs to said "Minor". A 26 year old MARRIED man should know better, and a MAN at all should not perfom such actions.

I was in jail with this guy for a week and he wouldn't tell me why he was in jail other than the fact that he had some "stupid" computer crime against him....which to be honest i figured it was on some child porn shit...which obviously i wasn't to far off...but dude definately seemed weird.

I knew him at Lejeune. He was a nice kid, but he obviously had mental issues. He was always on someone's list of trouble makers.
