Woman tries to have ex’s pregnant wife raped through craigslist

Woman tries to have ex's wife raped through craigslist

Michelle Suzanne Hadley

29-year-old Michelle Suzanne Hadley, of Ontario, California, was arrested for allegedly trying to arrange a rape of her ex-boyfriend’s pregnant wife through craigslist. Police say that Hadley placed ‘rape fantasy’ ads on craigslist posing as the victim…

“Hadley is accused of telling the responders that the victim wanted the responders to have forcible sexual intercourse with her, even if she screamed or resisted,” the district attorney’s office said.

In case you were wondering, yes, there are desperate enough losers who think ads like this are real. Unfortunately men did start showing up at the victim’s home in Anaheim. One suspect even physically attacked the woman before she could call for help. That man is still on the loose.

Hadley had been arrested for these ads back in late June but was recently arrested again, while out on bail, for allegedly continuing to harass and threaten the victim with violence. She’s now being held on $1M bond.

Sadly, this is hardly the first case of craigslist being used for what I call rape by proxy. Just off the top of my head I can remember Jebidiah James Stipe who had his ex-girlfriend raped through craigslist three states away, the unidentified man from Kannapolis, North Carolina, who had his wife raped by another man through craigslist, and Justin Crawford who tried to have his wife raped through craigslist, but she was able to fight off her attackers.

Again, it comes down to the fact that craigslist continues to leave their ads largely unmoderated unless it suits their needs, as Hadley was reportedly able to continually post ads soliciting men to try to rape her victim.

California caveman Kik kreeper caught with kiddie porn

Christopher Coates

Christopher Coates


Registered sex offender and possible missing link Christopher Coates, 41, of Carpinteria, California, recently pleaded not guilty in a Los Angeles court to allegedly making and receiving child porn on mobile messaging app Kik. Coates is no stranger to the world of child porn as he was previously convicted of child porn twice and for sexually assaulting a disabled female at a home for the disabled where he worked. Obviously those ‘harsh’ jail sentences and ‘rehabilitation’ didn’t have an effect on this one not to mention his time on the registry. Then again he is just a caveman pedophile and our world frightens and confuses him. Sometimes when he gets a message on Kik he wonders if little demons got inside his phone and typed it.

Apparently it’s so easy to find child porn on a Kik that even cavemen, sex offenders and pedophiles can use it.

Boyfriend of woman stabbed to death in craigslist confrontation tells his side


I originally posted about the stabbing death of 41-year-old Robin Smith, from Fresno, California, here. Now her boyfriend, who was present at the time of her stabbing, is taking to local media to tell his side of the story.

He claims that Smith contacted the man “to get some transmission fluid for her broken down vehicle”. However the article doesn’t say why he thinks that the man stabbed Smith if it wasn’t self-defense. He claims that he only accosted the man after Smith was stabbed. However the article does state that Smith had worked as a prostitute in the past which would lend credence to the report that the craigslist ad that stared the whole thing was for ‘companionship’.

Again that doesn’t mean she deserved to be killed however I am finding the transmission fluid story a little hard to believe. When people’s cars break down to some take to craigslist for immediate help? That would not be my first avenue of choice in that situation.

Police are still investigating and so far no charges have been filed.

Was Fresno craigslist stabbing self-defense?


For a while now craigslist has been described as the ‘Wild West’ of the internet. I think this story drives that point home better than most.

On New Year’s Eve 41-year-old Robin Smith, of Fresno, California, was stabbed to death, but was she a victim or an aggressor?

The man who killed her claims that he met Smith through craigslist regarding an ad for what the ABC 30 article calls companionship. The man also claims that Smith began asking for money and then Smith’s boyfriend allegedly attacked the man. The man then claims he stabbed Smith in self-defense. Fresno police are saying that the man is cooperating with police.

While we don’t know for sure I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention how much this sounded like a prostitution deal gone south. Does that mean Smith deserved to be stabbed to death? It’s hard to say at this time.

In true Wild West fashion there are no ‘good guys’ in this story but what led to her death remains to be seen.

What the Facebook underwear thief can teach you

Arturo Galvan

Arturo Galvan

44-year-old Arturo Galvan, of Menifee, California, is accused of allegedly going on a year-long burglary spree where he would steal the underwear of both men and women from their homes among other valuable items. Arturo is said to have used social media in order to know when and where to strike and painstakingly so.

From the LA Times

Investigators say Galvan identified his victims by hanging out in public gathering places in Fullerton and Orange and searching for social media posts where people “checked in” or otherwise provided clues to their location, according to Fullerton Police Sgt. Kathryn Hamel.

Galvan then allegedly searched through his victim’s posted photos, combed through GPS data attached to the digital images and mapped them to find out where they lived, Hamel said.

In this era of social media saturation we’ve let our guard down when it comes to our personal information. It doesn’t take much for criminals to determine when the best time is to take advantage of you. If you’re checking in someplace on social media do it after you leave. The same should go for posting pictures. If you’re posting pictures of your vacation while on vacation you may come home to an empty house.

Back in the early days of the internet it was all about trying to keep your personal information private but in the day of Facebook we’ve disregarded safety for ‘likes’.

LASD to stop arresting child prostitutes

Los Angeles County Sheriff Jim McDonnell

Los Angeles County Sheriff Jim McDonnell

Recently Los Angeles County Sheriff Jim McDonnell has ordered his department to no longer arrest underage prostitutes and that they shouldn’t be referred to as child prostitutes.

“They are child victims and survivors of rape,” McDonnell wrote in a letter to his employees. “We must remember that children cannot consent to sex under any circumstance.”

This is actually kind of a big deal considering the massive amount of square mileage that the LASD has jurisdiction over. Just the unincorporated parts of L.A. County covers 4,083 square miles.

Sheriff McDonnell goes on to say…

McDonnell said that he has instructed his employees to stop using the terms “child prostitute” and “underage prostitution.”

Using those terms, McDonnell said, strips responsibility from the traffickers and the people who pay to have sex with children.

“Buyers,” he said, “should be viewed as child molesters and predators.”

I couldn’t agree more. The only problem is that historically the punishment for the johns hasn’t been harsh enough to effectively curtail the demand. To make this an ideal situation new legislation for increased sentencing would be needed to go along with this much-needed view on the underage victims of sex trafficking.

Thanks to Jade for the tip.

SF Bay Area man accused of being social networking date rapist

Kwangmin Jin

Kwangmin Jin

20-year-old Kwangmin Jin of San Ramon, California, is accused of drugging and sexually assaulting four women in the San Francisco Bay area, specifically Fremont, California. Drugging and sexual assault are the terms the article used but let’s call a spade a spade. That sounds a lot like date rape.

Anyway, Jin is said to have met the women over Tinder, Facebook, Mocospace and Skout. Skout is new to me but it appears to be just another dating app even though it says its purpose is to meet new people. He allegedly used the aliases of Kevin Park, Kevin Jin, Jeremy Lee and Kevin Lee. Once he met the women he’d offer them a drink that was reportedly spiked with an unnamed sedative drug. The women would pass out and Jin is said to have sexually assaulted them while unconscious. Again, that sounds an awful lot like date rape to me.

Of course Jin may have more victims…

Fremont police said there is evidence indicating that there are probably more victims throughout the Bay Area. Anyone who may have had contact with Jin is asked to contact police at (510) 790-6900.

Jin was arrested at the University of Illinois at Urbana–Champaign where he was attending classes but so far there have been no mention of any victims in Illinois.

This story should serve as a reminder for both men and women regardless of sexual preference. Even though online dating has been a thing for close to 20 years now, if not longer, we’re still not at a place in our society where people you meet online can be trusted. Just from a safety standpoint online hook ups or one night stands should be avoided at all costs. I know that’s hard to say when you’re young and full of life and want to have fun. I get it I’ve been there and made some questionable decisions. Luckily none of them cost me any bodily harm. There’s a gamut of crimes that predators like this can commit from robbery to murder. It’s not worth losing your life over.

If you know someone who engages in this kind of risky behavior you may want to send them this story.

When Bad Breeders and Kik kollide: Woman molests 2-year-old for Kik kreeper boyfriend

Antonio Boleware

Antonio Boleware

43-year-old Joanna Olson of Longview, Washington, was recently indicted on charges of child molestation and child porn. Olson allegedly molested a 2-year-old girl and shared the images with her boyfriend, 38-year-old Antonio Boleware of San Diego, aka Tony Papabear. More like Tony Pedobear, but I digress.

Boleware then allegedly shared the images on Kik with an undercover FBI agent…

Writing in court papers, a Vancouver-based FBI agent said another Kik user sent the undercover officer videos of Olson exposing and sexually abusing a 2-year-old girl. The other user said Olson had agreed he could “breed” with the girl.

“She’s always been an fantasy pedo mom,” the other Kik user said in a chat with the undercover officer, according to charging papers. “I just made it real for her.”

Not surprising in the least Boleware is a registered sex offender whose previous charges involved children.

What is always surprising is why any woman would willingly molest not just a child, but if Boleware is to believed, her own child to please a boyfriend? I have to ask this every time I post a story like this because it’s just so unfathomable to me. This is worse than when someone refuses to leave an abusive relationship because their significant other says that they love them. It’s much worse because they’re inflicting horrific and scarring abuse on an innocent child by someone whose main duty is supposed to be to protect them.


If you believe a child is being sexually abused call your local police or contact the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children’s CyberTipline at 1 (800) 843-5678 or cybertipline.com.

Your next klass of Kik Kreepers


James Ameer Wofford of Bakersfield, California is accused of allegedly posting child porn on Kik using the alias Jimmy Wolf. At the time of his arrest Wofford was a charter school employee and a daycare was being run from his home.

34-year-old Joshua A. Stevens of Cheyenne, Wyoming is accused of allegedly sexual violating a minor and posting the pics to Kik. While looking for others on Kik that were “into incest and young play” he reportedly sent the images to an undercover investigator.

Lastly, getting back to the school theme, 32-year-old high school teacher Jonathan Robert Maggiano, of Tualatin, Oregon, met a 17-year-old girl on the PC gaming platform Steam then allegedly used Kik to stay in contract with her before they ‘had sex’. Age of consent in Oregon is 18.

Remember folks, as a parent you’re the only real line of defense between online predators and your kids as Kik has been known to be frequently used by pedophiles and sex offenders.

Two plead guilty to child prostitution on MyRedbook


When I posted about former owner of MyRedbook, Eric Omuro, being prosecuted and convicted of facilitating prostitution one of the reactions I received was that MyRedbook was ‘different’ and that no children were being trafficked on the site.

The federal government may disagree since recently two men from San Jose, California, pleaded guilty to trafficking a minor for sex on MyRedbook. 28-year-old Justin Everett Crutchfield and 24-year-old Demontae Terrell Toliver both pleaded guilty in federal court to knowingly trafficking a girl who was under the age of 16 on the former escort site.

I can already hear you saying “But Trench, this is only one instance of child prostitution on MyRedbook”. To that I say MyRedbook had a much smaller userbase than a site like Backpage. Not only that but usually where there’s one instance of a crime going on there’s more that is either not caught or we don’t hear about.

Thankfully this avenue for trafficking women and children has been closed and hopefully another and more major closing will be happening soon.
