A 22-year-old Camp Lejeune Marine is behind bars accused of intentionally hurting his own infant.

The Marine lance corporal was charged with intentional child abuse-serious bodily injury. #Court documents say the boy was assaulted between August 26th and October 27th.

Yates, who is assigned to the 2nd Combat Engineer Battalion at Lejeune, went before a judge this morning and he remains jail on a $100,000 bond.
