Guy who tried to have his wife raped through craigslist is sentenced

TF Man Sentenced in Craigslist Rape Case:

Twin Falls man sentenced for solicitation of rape:

Justin Crawford

Justin Crawford

In 2012 Justin Crawford of Twin Falls, Idaho, posted ads on craigslist posing as his wife advertising that she had a rape fantasy. Two men on separate occasions tried to rape her. One was able to wrest her gun away from her before leaving while the other was held at gunpoint by the victim until police arrived. Thankfully neither were able to rape her.

Crawford was recently sentenced for solicitation of rape and it wasn’t much of a sentence. He could spend 10 years in prison if the judge deems it necessary after he completes psychological treatment by the State of Idaho. So in theory after the program he could walk off a free man.

Crawford claims that this was all an elaborate suicide plot caused by his PTSD from serving in the National Guard overseas. He says he thought his wife would care less about him and would make it easier for him to commit suicide. Personally I think it’s a load of crap. He wouldn’t be the first guy to get his jollies from seeing his wife raped by a stranger from craigslist. I think he’s using PTSD as an excuse but hey, I’m not a judge. If I was he’s be going away for a long time.

To me he’s just another prototypical example of the kind of scum that infest craigslist while craigslist refuses to do anything about it. What makes it worse is the people who turn a blind eye to these crimes and still support craigslist like it’s some kind of community outreach program. It’s not, it’s still dirty and still in need of cleaning up.

Guy who tried to have his wife raped through craigslist pleads guilty

Twin Falls Man Pleads Guilty in Craigslist Rape Solicitation Case:

Guardsman pleads to Craigslist ad soliciting wife’s rape:

Justin Crawford

Justin Crawford

33-year-old Justin Crawford of Twin Falls, Idaho was arrested last year for soliciting the rape of his wife through craigslist. Luckily she was not raped however two men on separate occasions did make their way into the house to try. One wrestled a gun away from her while the other she held at gunpoint until police arrived. Crawford posed as his wife telling these two men that she was into rape fantasies and that they should do it no matter how much she fights back.

Late last year Crawford rejected a plea deal that would have seen him get 10 to 15 behind bars. Last week Crawford must have thought better of it and decided to plead guilty. Crawford is a member of the Idaho National Guard and his defense was going to be that he suffers from PTSD. While it may be true that he does suffer from PTSD I don’t see how that would cause him to craft such an elaborate plan to have his wife raped. He’s still looking at the 10-15 years and may not be sentenced until next year.

As I’ve mentioned before Crawford is not the first person to solicit someone’s rape through craigslist or as I call it rape by proxy. Hell, he’s not even the first guy to try to have his wife raped. Unfortunately the first guy to do that succeeded. Still craigslist continues to go on without being moderated and continues to attract any number of sexual predators without any kind of backlash. On top of that there are still people out there who think craigslist is completely safe and trustworthy. I would think that Crawford’s victim would say otherwise.

Guy charged in Idaho MeetMe rape

Nicholas Longo

Nicholas Longo

Oregon man faces rape charge in Idaho:

First I’d like to commend KTVB in Idaho for actually using the word rape in their story. Too many media outlets are replacing the word rape with terms like ‘had sex’. It’s good to see at least one media outlet telling it like it is.

Anyway police in Oregon have arrested 20-year-old Nicholas Longo of Brookings, Oregon on charges that he allegedly raped a 16-year-old girl from Boise that he met on social network site MeetMe.

Police say that Longo lived in Idaho at the time of the rape in March and invited the girl to a party after meeting her on MeetMe. The victim says that Longo raped her at the party while Longo says that the sex was consensual. Never mind the fact that under Idaho law no one under the age of 18 can legally consent to sex. So consensual or not it’s still rape under the eyes of the law.

Police also say that Longo moved to Oregon shortly after the rape took place. That’s not suspicious at all.

Now cue all his loser friends and pedo-defenders who will more than likely blame the victims.

My advice to parents is keep your kids off of MeetMe, formerly known as MyYearbook. I hate to use an old joke but it really should be called MeatMe because it really is nothing more than a hook up site.

Guy who tried to have his wife raped through craigslist rejects plea deal

Justin Crawford

Man who allegedly solicited men to rape his wife through Craigslist rejects plea:

Justin Crawford is the guy from Twin Falls, Idaho who allegedly tried to have his wife raped by placing ads on craigslist posing as his wife saying she was into rape fantasies. This resulted in two men on two different instances showing up to their house to try to rape her.

I’ve detailed before how stupid I think he is and how stupid his plan was, not to mention downright abhorrent. Well, the stupidity doesn’t end there. Recently Crawford rejected a plea deal that would have seen him get 10-15 years in prison. That’s a bargain for a scumbag like this if you ask me. I wouldn’t be surprised if this moron tried to defend himself at trial. By all means, go right ahead. I only hope against hope that after he’s convicted he receives a lot more time than 15 years.

Again this highlights the need for craigslist to moderate their site for twisted cowards like this. Yet people still use the site like there’s no danger at all and I keep pushing this rock uphill.

Guy who tried to have his wife raped through craigslist released

Justin Crawford

Alleged Craigslist Rape Solicitor Released:

You remember 32-year-old Justin Crawford of Twin Falls, Idaho don’t you? In case you don’t He’s the twisted scumbag who allegedly got not one but two men to show up at his house in an attempt to rape his wife. Crawford posed as his wife on craigslist and convinced two dumbasses to come to his house thinking that Crawford’s wife was looking for a rape fantasy. Well, sleep tight Twin Falls because he’s been released from jail. Not just released but released on his own recognizance.

State prosecutors agreed to the release on the condition that Crawford follow court compliance instructions and that he seek treatment for post-traumatic stress disorder.

Seriously? Apparently the Idaho prosecutors must be smoking potatoes to let this guy out on the pretense that he behaves himself. His PTSD may be legitimate since he did do a tour in Iraq with the National Guard but so what? Do you think his wife is not possibly having PTSD after two strangers show up in her house with the intent of raping her so her fucked up husband can get his fucked up jollies?

This is beyond disgusting and if Crawford rabbits or finds himself in legal trouble again these prosecutors should do his time along with him.

Is anybody held responsible for anything anymore?

UPDATE 10/21/2012: Crawford has pleaded not guilty.

ID man charged with setting up attempted rape of his wife on craigslist

Justin Crawford

Man arrested after sexual assault ad on Craigslist:

Rape ad sparks 2 attempts on woman — and charges against husband:

Police: Attempted Rape was Planned through Craigslist:

32-year-old Justin Crawford of Twin Falls, Idaho was arrested recently after two separate men attempted to rape his wife. The first guy showed up at their house and she managed to retrieve a gun. The assailant was able to get the gun away from her and fled. The second guy was found by police in the woman’s home being held at gunpoint by her.

When police questioned the second suspect he allegedly said that he was responding to a craigslist ad in the casual encounters section from a woman interested in a ‘rape fantasy’. When investigators searched the 2nd suspect’s cell phone they discovered that Crawford was the one allegedly exchanging e-mails with the two would be rapists.

So who do you think is more stupid in this case? Crawford for not only allegedly setting up the rape of his wife TWICE knowing that police would have to be involved at some point and also knowing that there are guns in the house and she knows how to use them or the two dipshits who actually believed that a woman who supposedly wanted a rape fantasy would announce it to the world on craiglist.

Listen up idiots. Women on craigslist aren’t real and even if they are they probably have more critters on them than a West Atlantic City hotel mattress.

Sadly this is not the first or even the second case of craigslist rape by proxy that I’ve posted about. The first one that sticks out in my mind is the yet to be named husband from Kannapolis, North Carolina whose wife was actually allegedly raped by Rodney Liverman. The other one was Jebidiah James Stipe of Twentynine Palms, California who set up the rape of his ex-girlfriend in Wyoming by Ty Oliver McDowell.

Will this be the tipping point for craigslist in the media? Will this finally be a call to the country that craigslist is still far from cleaned up? Will this be the catalyst that causes craigslist to finally monitor their own sleazy site? Somehow I get the feeling that the answer to all of those questions is, I seriously doubt it.

Thanks to Shannon for the tip.

Idaho man charged with offering 3-year-old for sex on craigslist

Jason Lloyd Schaber

Sheriff: 39-year-old Boise man arrested after posting Craigslist ad offering toddler for sex:

39-year-old Jason Lloyd Schaber of Boise, Idaho has been charged with offering a 3-year-old girl for sex on craigslist. You know, after seeing some of the repulsive ads that I’ve seen other predators post on craigslist my mind boggles at what this scumbag could possibly have placed in his ad.

Not only was Schaber allegedly trying to sell this girl for sex on craigslist but when investigators searched his computer they found video evidence of Schaber having ‘illegal sexual contact’ with the girl.

The relationship between Schaber and his victim have not been made public to my knowledge however the girl is now in protective state custody. Investigators say that they believe that Schaber was not successful in getting anyone to pay to have sex with the girl. Police also believe that Schaber may have other victims.

Once again I have to take craigslist to task for still not monitoring their site. It’s obvious to most reasonable humans that the so-called community policing has failed miserably.

As reprehensible as this assclown’s actions are maybe this case can bring attention to the still sorry state of craigslist as the pedophiles’ and predators’ playground.

UPDATE 6/3/2012: Remember when I said that I can’t imagine what the ads could have possibly said. Now we know some of it

One of sex ads stated “desperate times calls for desperate measures.”

One of the ads, prosecutors say, had a graphic description of the prostitution plans with the child.

“Hurry before your once in a lifetime opportunity passes you by,” the ad stated.

This bastard should be executed.

UPDATE 10/14/12: Schaber has pleaded not guilty and is looking at a February trial.

UPDATE 2/23/2013: The charges against Schaber for offering the child for sex on craigslist have been dropped but instead Schaber has been indicted on multiple child porn charges which will carry more prison time.

UPDATE 6/15/2013: Schaber has changed his plea to guilty and is looking at between 20 and 50 years in prison. Also it’s been confirmed that the ad was placed in the casual encounters section of craigslist yet craigslist still refuses to monitor it and sadly no one cares outside of me if they do or not.

UPDATE 9/10/2013: I’m a little behind on this one but about a month ago Schaber was sentenced to 30 years in prison. The judge even said “This is one of the most insidious and heinous cases I’ve handled in my 50 years on the bench.”

Female MySpace predator can’t stay out of jail

Ruth Alvarez

SW Idaho woman back in jail 3 days after release from prison in MySpace enticement case:

Southwest Idaho woman back in jail 3 days after release:

I originally posted about Ruth Alvarez here. Last year Alvarez was arrested in Idaho for soliciting a 13-year-old boy for sex over MySpace. At the time of my first post I said that she was looking at 15 years but since she’s female she’d probably get much less than that. I was right.

She was sentenced to only 2 1/2 years and got out after 7 months this past week after completing a “rider program, where she received counseling and treatment”. That’s the politically correct term for saying she took some BS class for sex offenders to get out early.

Anyway, she’s back in jail after only 3 days of being released. Part of her probation was that she couldn’t be in a house with children which investigators say she violated.

While female online predators are rare they are no less dangerous than their male counterparts and should be treated as such. No more joke sentences or classes that they can fake their way through. Send them to jail and keep them there.

Craigslist cruiser exposed partners to HIV

Sheriff: Boise man sought out sex partners via Craigslist and failed to tell them he had HIV:

Sheriff: Man had sex with at least 20, didn’t tell them he has HIV:

You know, I have no problem with people that are gay. I do not oppose gay marriage and I wholeheartedly believe that gay couples should be allowed to adopt. However for the love of all that is non-infectious would the gay men, and the so called straight men that keep it on the down low, please stop using craigslist to cruise for anonymous sex? If you do you might run into a guy like this.

31-year-old Michael V. Everhart of Boise, Idaho was in the custody of the Ada County Sheriff’s Office on a probation violation when he allegedly confessed to police that not only was he HIV positive but that he had unprotected sex with at least 20 people, some of which he met on craigslist. I’m going to go out on a limb here and say that is was more than likely the casual encounters section that he used. Everhart did not reveal to his partners that he was HIV positive. Police say that his victims were 1 woman and 19 men. I’m not sure what that makes his batting percentage.

There are as many as 15 additional victims living in and around the Treasure Valley. They are encouraged to call Detective Shellie Strolberg at 577-3788.

This creep is not a victim. He knowingly exposed 20 people to HIV all in order to satisfy his own sexual gratification at the risk of possibly slowly killing 20 people.

This is what lurks on the casual encounters section of craigslist. Keep using it and this is what could happen to you.

18 Attorneys General call for the shutdown of craigslist’s adult services but one is missing

AGs Call for End of Craigslist Adult Services:

Attorneys general target Craigslist:

Missouri AG Chris Koster joins other attorneys general asking Craigslist to remove adult ads:

Ohio AG: Craigslist should drop adult services:

Tennessee AG joins in call on Craigslist to eliminate adult services section:

AGs demand Craigslist drop adult services section:

Gansler among 17 state AGs calling for Craigslist to drop adult services:

Kansas AG Asks Craigslist To Remove Adult Ads:

In case you couldn’t tell this is big news.

18 U.S. State Attorneys General have called for craigslist to shut down the adult services section. Among those are Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut, Martha Coakley of Massachusetts, Chris Koster of Missouri, Richard Cordray of Ohio, Bob Cooper of Tennessee, Dustin McDaniel of Arkansas, Douglas F. Gansler of Maryland, and Steve Six of Kansas. Not mentioned are the AGs from Idaho, Illinois, Iowa, Michigan, Montana, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Texas and Virginia.

Of course craigslist was quick to pay lip service to the AGs…

Craigslist supports states’ efforts to stop illegal exploitation, spokeswoman Susan MacTavish Best said in a statement that did not indicate whether the website plans to get rid of its adult services section.

Of course they have no intention of getting rid of adult services. Craigslist has a history of flying in the face of common decency.

While this is a big piece of news there’s something missing. It’s easy for these attorneys general to call for craigslist to shut down adult services. There’s only one attorney general who if he put his name behind this movement would have a huge impact. I am of course referring to former governor, former mayor of Oakland, current gubernatorial candidate and current attorney general of California…

Jerry Brown

Attorney General Brown, we may be politically opposed in some of our views but for a man who cares about the environment and opposes the death penalty I would imagine that you would be opposed to the trafficking of women and children that is being facilitated by craigslist.

Craigslist is headquartered in your home state. In my opinion craigslist’s shameful record when it comes to prostitution, child prostitution and human trafficking is a black eye for the Golden State. If I can’t appeal to your heart I will appeal to your aspirations. How much of a huge political coup would it be in your current gubernatorial race if you got the biggest facilitator of human trafficking in the country to get that section of the website shut down?

Mr. Brown, I beg of you to add your name to that of the other state attorney’s general in asking craigslist to shut down the adult services section. Maybe they will listen to you.

Don’t forget, while craigslist is dragging its feet Geebo.com has been human trafficking free since its inception.
