A United States Marine is facing charges of sexual abuse against a child and sits in the Harris County jail. According to the Harris County Sheriff’s Office, George Christopher Aragon was taken into custody overseas by members of the Gulf Coast Violent Offenders & Fugitive Task Force.

Aragon, who was wanted by investigators with the Harris County Sheriff’s Office Special Victims Unit for continuous sexual abuse of a child, reportedly sexually assaulted his victim over a period of several years; the victim is now a teenager.

The HCSO provides additional details of the case: “The Gulf Coast Violent Offenders & Fugitive Task Force, which includes Harris County Sheriff’s Office deputies and Deputy U.S. Marshals, discovered that Aragon was actively serving in the US Marine Corps (USMC) and was stationed in Japan. Task Force Investigators further learned that Aragon was on temporary assignment at an airbase in Guam. With the assistance of Deputy US Marshals from the Guam office and investigators from the Naval Criminal Investigative Service (NCIS), Task Force investigators arrested Aragon.”

Twenty-two-year-old Aragon was extradited to Houston and booked into the Harris County Jail on Tuesday. He is being held there on a $50,000 bond.
