This one somehow escaped my notice but 28-year-old Johnson Colby Sheffield of Austin, Texas was sentenced to 10 years in federal prison for soliciting underage girls on the Las Vegas craigslist.
Sheffield, who is a former Nevada resident, posted an ad on craigslist looking for sex with underage girls. On his ad was a picture of his face and another one of his junk. Of course one of the respondents to his ad was the Henderson, Nevada police. Investigators found evidence on his cell phone that Sheffield had solicited other girls as well.
I’m almost positive that Sheffield’s ad was on the casual encounters section which once again shows that craigslist obviously needs to moderate this section and not rely on the failed community policing.
