SURF CITY, NC (JACKSONVILLE DAILY NEWS) -- A Marine aide-de-camp for a Camp Lejeune three-star general had his first appearance in court Tuesday after being arrested for possession of child pornography.
Capt. Daniel Joseph Nilsson, 32, of Surf City, was charged Oct. 5 by the N.C. State Bureau of Investigation following a three-month probe into suspect computer activity, and charged with six counts of second degree exploitation of a minor, a Class E felony offense.
Nilsson, originally of Ramsey, Minn., was previously the commanding officer of Golf Company, 2nd Battalion, 9th Marines, before becoming aide-de-camp to Lt. Gen. John Paxton, commander of II Marine Expeditionary Force, earlier this year. II MEF officials said that Nilsson was relieved of his position following the arrest, and assigned to unit administrative duties until an investigation into his actions is completed. Naval Criminal Investigative Service agents are aiding civilian authorities in this investigation, Marine officials said.
