And he already had a restraining order against him, but found a way to get around it... That's a good way to get a super-restrictive restraining order. Don't cross an angry judge.

At least he had the sense not to say put 'Don't bother knocking, I have rape fantasies. If the door's locked, the key is in the bottom of the garden gnome.' on the ads.

I know someone this happened to, but different: while they were still dating, the guy did this to make the girl think her ex did it. The guy did not seem that type, I'm actually really concerned that there's something seriously wrong with him.

Craigslist posts also invited people to dig up her landscaping plants plus disassemble and remove a play structure in her yard.

Are you surprised by this? The amount of sex available to any woman who makes a minimal effort is effectively infinite. I'm actually surprised that it's only 20, he must not have put much effort into this.

Charged? Depends.

Read it? No.

Grabbed the key, walked in, and engaged in rapeytime? Yes.

There's usually a felony statute for inducing someone else to commit a felony. Like hiring someone else to commit murder, for example.
And for the guy that read it, if he then went through with the rape? Yeah, absolutely. Most statutes don't require specific intent to have sex without the victim's consent, but rather intent to have sex and the victim doesn't consent. I don't know of any that require the specific intent, but even if one existed, you'd probably still be able to get a conviction on a gross recklessness or willful blindness standard.

a quick question to the fark community:

The WhyKnot family is taking a vacation and we are actively looking for a rental house in our destination city. After searching craiglist we identified a possible rental property. Several backs and forth emails resulted in the receipt of the rental agreement and a request to Western Union our deposit to a gentlemen in the San Bernardino area.

Western Union always raises my alarm bells, so I did a quick google search of the recipient's name with the word scam. Low and behold, the name came up on several of the scam alert websites. Additionally, the emails on the scam alert websites were identical to the ones we had been receiving.

Clearly this is a scam, so we will not be proceeding. That being said, scammers can suck my nuts and are some of the worst people alive, as a result I forward the emails to the San Bernardino county sheriffs office with a link to scam website.

My question to the fark community, what else should I do? I just checked and the craiglist ad has already been flagged and removed.

Thank you.

As you should be... is she still with him?

Per TFA, every day I google personal information about myself to make sure my ex is not attempting anything such as this. Exhausting vigilance FTW.
 
2012-02-23 02:41:43 PM  
What's really sad about this is...guys will go over to some slut's house to have sex with her, and they don't even know her at all. God knows what kind of diseases she could have. No pride i guess. Some guys will fark anything.

Contact your local Post Office. Interstate wire fraud falls under the Postmaster General's domain.

Dude, I don't have any solutions to your Craigslist issue, but seriously, using your last name as your Fark handle is probably a really bad idea.

IIRC correctly, this premise was used in a Law and Order episode, maybe a NCIS one as well. In one of them, I think the guy that posted the ad got charged with rape-rape, while the guy who did the physical act pled down to lewd conduct or something. In the other episode, the lady shot the physical guy dead, which got the poster charged with murder. Take that for whatever you think cop-drama lawyering is worth.

Find out his address and post a craigslist ad for gay sex using his name.

He's being held at the Multnomah County Jail on $30,000 bail.

And will soon sell the rights for his story to Lifetime for nearly double that, depending on the exchange rate for the Canadian dollar.

Call the cops San Bernandino cops. They may want to assume your position in the email exchange, wire some money and put cuffs on whoever picks it up.

its easier to get cheap labor over craigslist than it is to proposition people in the home depot parking lot. I mean if you'll pick weeds for 5 bucks an hour why won't you pick other things for considerably more money?
