Marine recruiter arrested in Craigslist sex sting:

It wasn’t my intention to post this story on Memorial Day but here we are. I have much respect for the men and women in the armed forces unless they turn out to be scumbags like this guy.

Anyway, police in Mount Dora, Florida arrested 26-year-old David Reinoso Rodriguez of Kissimmee for allegedly soliciting a minor for sex through craigslist. Rodriguez is a Marine recruiter who did tours in both Iraq and Afghanistan.

Police had placed an ad on craigslist posing as a step-mother and her 14-year-old step-daughter looking for sex. They say that Rodriguez responded to the ad looking to have sex with the fictitious pair. Police were waiting for them at the meeting point instead.

I get the impression from the article that Rodriguez is claiming some kind of entrapment. The best part is what else he’s supposedly claiming in his defense. According to the article, Rodriguez thought that it would be ok to have sex with the 14-year-old since there was parental consent. In my 12 years of blogging, I can honestly say that’s the first time I’ve ever heard that used as an excuse. I’ll give him points for creativity or stupidity, take your pick.

By the way, he’s out on bail so sleep tight Orlando area parents.

And once again while most media outlets continue to give craigslist a pass since they shut down the erotic services section it is far from being cleaned up as it is now the go-to place for sexual predators.

  1. We saw this same posting in our city too last year and then read about it in the local paper. We had actually replied to the post but when the woman mentioned her underage daughter we bailed. Was funny though because we sort of thought it was a sting because of the acting that officer was doing and then read  about the sting in the paper the next week. As if there wasn’t already enough spam on craigslist. http://www.thiscouple.com/sbl/


  2. I’m seriously doubting this guy is a Marine.  His hair would normally be pushing it for a regular Marine, but there’s no way they’d let a recruiter run around with a low reg.  Then there’s that ball tickler of his, which again a Marine wouldn’t have.  Even if he didn’t shave for a weekend I’m doubtful he’d manage that much facial hair.
