I’m beginning to think that MySpace and craigslist are now neck and neck for the number of sexual predators among their ranks. As a matter of fact craigslist may have even pulled ahead in the race with no winners.
46-year-old Erik Allyn Brisbin was arrested by Lewis County Sheriff’s Office in Washington on attempted child rape charges.
He was nabbed in a sting where the sheriffs posed on craigslist as a mother pimping out her 13-year-old daughter.
The article doesn’t say but I would imagine they didn’t have to wait long.
Here’s a snippet from the ad…
“times are still tight and have expenses to pay. Anyone DDF [drug and disease free] who likes a hot mom and a hot younger daughter hit us up,”
If I read that I would automatically think that is at least some kind of offer of prostitution.
The article doesn’t say if craigslist actually worked with police or not but if they didn’t how did the ad get through craigslist’s ‘screening process’ or ‘community policing’?
