Richard Lester Biggs
Back in December of 2014 52-year-old Richard Lester Biggs of Clackamas County, Oregon, allegedly placed a craigslist ad entitled “Older for younger” and that he had a fantasy of being with younger women. The ad gets creepier from there…
“I want to see if I can find a younger woman who maybe has always wanted to be with an older man, maybe a Daddy’s Girl.”
Biggs got a response to his ad from a 13-year-old girl whose house he showed up to with booze, lube, and a sex toy. The girl refused to leave the house and when Biggs pulled away he was stopped and arrested by Clackamas County Sheriff’s deputies. The entire meeting was a police sting targeting possible craigslist predators.
Well, they caught one because recently Biggs pleaded guilty to child corruption charges and was sentenced to 30 days behind bars and 3 years probation. Biggs’ attorney had this to say prior to sentencing…
“My client is not a predator nor is there a substantial risk of recidivism,”
Right, because all sorts of normal people bring dildos and lube to a 13-year-old girl’s house.
Former middle school football coach Robert Lesnau, of the Detroit area, was arrested back in March for allegedly soliciting sex from a six-year-old girl through craigslist.
According to federal investigators Lesnau contacted a woman on craigslist for her ‘adult services’. Allegedly Lesnau heard the woman’s six-year-old daughter crying in the background and asked how much would it be to have sex with the girl. The woman ended the phone call and reported it to authorities. The FBI stepped in and had the woman call back saying that she was desperate for money and was willing to entertain Lesnau’s vile request.
Let’s top right there for a moment. I can already hear the perv patrol crying and gnashing their teeth while wailing claims of entrapment. This is not entrapment. If the reports are correct, which I’m going to assume they are, the suspect was the first person to approach the subject of having sex with her daughter. If law enforcement were the ones to first bring it up then it would be entrapment. Now back to our story.
Besides, after you read this I don’t think anyone would believe a claim of entrapment…
A series of texts were exchanged, during which Lesnau asked for topless photos of the mother and daughter to ensure they were “for real,” asked about the child’s prior sexual experience and offered to pay $200, the FBI says.
Conversation became more graphic in a phone call the following day, during which the FBI says Lesnau said he wanted to watch the mother and daughter “play around together” with adult toys.
Investigators set up a meeting place at a Rochester motel where Lesnau was arrested.
Lesnau’s attorney is saying that the criminal complaint is one-sided and Lesnau is looking forward to his day in court. I can’t imagine what he could possibly present that would exonerate him.
Anyway once again craigslist is the go to place for pedophiles to find their next victims and craigslist still refuses to do anything about it. I don’t ever remember the newspaper classifieds being used for child rape back in the day.
Lesnau’s former school says none of the students he coached have claimed to have been abused.
Ever since To Catch A Predator started airing I would love the excuses the pervs would use when they got caught. The most popular one was “I was just going to hang out.” Right, a middle-aged man who IM’d an underage girl all about sex who brought condoms and wine coolers was just there to hang out. So I kind of took interest in what 21-year-old Matthew Kaius Christianson of Inver Grove Heights, Minnesota had to say when he was arrested.
Christianson allegedly solicited a 15-year-old girl for oral sex on MeetMe. I usually describe MeetMe as the low rent spiritual successor to MySpace. While its terns of service allow for anyone over 13 to be on their site it’s mostly used for hooking up.
In this case the girl was real and eventually the police got involved. Christianson allegedly told police he would solicit girls on MeetMe to “build up his confidence when talking with females.” Building your confidence is one thing but asking a minor for a mouth hug is definitely another. He’s probably one of these guys who can’t even approach a women in meat space but is probably a total misogynistic assclown online who calls women ‘bb’ and says things like ‘tits or GTFO’. Unfortunately the internet is just a breeding ground for cretins like this and MeetMe seems to be ground zero.
27-year-old Jonathan Blum is a high school teacher in the Bronx although that may not make him the brightest bulb. New York investigators say that Blum posted a craigslist ad allegedly looking for sex with someone underage who was “interested in messing around with a licensed real teacher.” He might as well have just called the police to turn himself in to eliminate the middle man. Instead police posed as a 14-year-old girl and were able to arrest Blum at a pre-arranged meeting place.
At least this exposed a teacher as an alleged predator before he could hopefully harm any kids.
43-year-old Bradley Kosmatka of Cedarburg, Wisconsin, was recently arrested on charges of attempted child enticement, attempted sexual assault of a child under 16 and trafficking of a child. It all started when a state investigator found an ad in the craigslist personals that was entitled…
“Donate for the Mom and daughter fantasy — m4ww — 40 (Grafton)”
Ick. For the uninitiated this usually means that someone wants to ‘have sex’ with a mother and her underage daughter, but mostly just the underage daughter. Like I said, ick.
Thankfully the investigator responded to the ad posing as a mother with two daughters ages 14 and 11. Kosmatka allegedly wanted the 14-year-old to join in while the 11-year-old watched.
Kosmatka was arrested at a McDonald’s, naturally, where he is said to have denied wanting to have sex with the girl and that he was going to give the mother money for a baby sitter.
As I’ve said before there actually are parents out there who are willing to loan their kids to pedophiles for either money or joining in and craigslist continues to turn a blind eye to them.
Police say that 58-year-old Donald Tisdale of Albertville, Minnesota, posted the following ad on the casual encounters section of craigslist…
“Who’s playing hooky from school today???” was posted in the casual encounters section on Monday, Feb. 23.
The ad invited students who were home from school on President’s Day to contact the ad’s author to see “how I can make your day.” The ad’s author said he was a middle-aged man and that responders “need to be Ok with that.” He said in the ad he was fun, interesting and has “a great sense of humor.”
Spoiler alert. he was contacted by law enforcement posing as a 14-year-old girl. He allegedly responded to the girl by sending her a pic of his junk and followed it up with the following message…
It was followed by a message that reads: “do you want it, do you want to touch it, suck it and feel it in you? Can I see a xxx pic of you?”
He was arrested at a local restaurant of course.
Craigslist could cut these ads off at the source but they choose not to.
An article from CNN makes a case for making your children’s bedrooms a ‘screen free zone’ meaning no tablets, cell phones or computers in a child’s bedroom. They argue that kids having these devices in bed can affect their sleep but there’s another benefit to screen free bedrooms.
If kids do not have these devices in their bedrooms then it makes it harder for predators to contact them while parents are unaware. I’ve posted way too many stories where kids have been groomed through their cell phones on mobile apps than I care to remember. Also while the kids are sleeping this gives parents a chance to see what the kids are doing on their devices by reviewing their apps and history.
Just some people who have been arrested for allegedly posting child porn to micro-blogging site Tumblr.
62-year-old Richard Comenzo, a public defender from Massachusetts using the screen name of ‘XBostonDad’ He’s also accused of soliciting children for sex. Tumblr reported him to the NCMEC.
47-year-old Billy Scott McGhee and 36-year-old Aaron N. Landers, both of Bristow, Virginia have also been arrested for allegedly posting child porn to Tumblr. Authorities were again notified by the NCMEC.
I don’t know what it is about Tumblr that attracts the pedos but this should serve as warning that they need to stop. As I’ve mentioned before Tumblr is owned by Yahoo which used to have a bad reputation when it came to dealing with predators in their chat rooms. They’re not making the same mistake with Tumblr and they will turn you in.
Recently 29-year-old death metal singer Lane Steele Kozloff was recently arrested in Torrance, California for allegedly soliciting sex from a 14-year-old girl on craigslist. Investigators say that Kozloff placed an ad looking for a “lil girl”. Ew. Kozlofff is said to have arranged a meeting with the girl at a restaurant and that the back of his SUV was all laid out with a makeshift bed. Of course the 14-year-old girl was actually a federal agent. When you have a bed in the back of your ride you can’t really argue that you were just going to ‘hang out’.
I’m not going to mention his band or anything because the rest of the band probably had nothing to do with it however it is of interest that Kozloff has worked as a substitute teacher at a music school. I guess he can kiss that gig goodbye.
Donald Gary Town
47-year-old Donald Gary Town was recently arrested in Missoula, Montana, for allegedly trying to solicit sex from a 14-year-old boy on craigslist who was actually an investigator from the Montana Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force. Town’s ad allegedly said that he was in to “young skinny” males. Town is said to have the investigator for explicit photos and of course was arrested at pre-determined meeting location.
Not surprisingly Town is a registered sex offender who not only did time for sexual abuse of children but also sexual intercourse without consent. He obviously didn’t do enough time. I mean who would have guessed that a sex offender would have taken to craigslist to find more victims? The answer to that question is everyone except craigslist.
