And how well does it work when the person who filed the complaint doesn't testify?
If there's evidence (DNA, e.g.) that this Marine had sex with a 14 year old, even without evidence that it was nonconsensual he can and should be prosecuted under the UCMJ and will do hard time. IIRC, it's called "carnal knowledge" rather than "statutory rape", but the rules and penalties are similar.
