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 has 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.”
