So because he was a Marine and overseas when he committed the first crime he doesn't show up on any sex offender list?

This doesn't seem right.

His buddy from the Okinawa event is in Griffin Georgia, also not on the sex offender list. Seems there is a loophole that needs to be fixed. Then maybe the public can make informed decisions.

I agree with Greg. I was a female friend of Ledet's before he went into the military and at the time I was only 14 years old and he was much older at the time. Although we were not intimate, just friends, it doesn't surprise me that he was interested in young girls. He never showed any signs of being a monster, but he indeed turne out to be. My heart goes out to the families of both women. He did not deserve to walk this earth and burning in Hell for what he did to those women is what he Deserves.

How did you end up being friend with Ledet? I thought it is creepy for an older guy who wanted to be friends with younger girls. Sorry, but that is just wrong in every way of the world.

I think the real issue is that sex offender in foreign nation should apply to USA.

And was Cooper dating Ledet the Leach?

Sorry but Lauren looked liked Catherine Zeta Jones, it took months to get a first kiss and I'm handsome. She would have never dated that ugly rapist murderer. You people should be ashamed to insinuate that she would give that ugly, murdering creep the time of day. RIP Lauren:(

That FPOS should have been put to death after what he did in Japan! The Japanese were too lenient in their sentencing. The U.S. military should introduce a special section into their Code of Justice. Any soldier convicted of sexually assaulting a native in Japan gets a minimum mandatory sentence of 25 years in Ft. Leavenworth, and life if the victim dies or is permanently disabled. That'd put some ice on those wild c***s!

As for family & friends who continue to proclaim what a nice guy he was, you are all twisted SOBs. I'm sure if someone raped a 12 year old family member of yours, or killed a 22 year old family member of yours, you'd be up in arms. But apparently, it's okay for your family members to do the same for others. That makes you putrid human scum!

he was innocent! The 12 yr old girl was a set up. When he survived that the govt got creative and got rid of him before he could talk. A big ole conspiracy
