Minn. craigslist creeper wanted young native

Bemidji, Minnesota, is home to part of three separate Chippewa reservations, which probably explains why someone posted a craigslist ad there, looking for a ‘young native’. The Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension noticed an ad that was allegedly posted by 20-year-old Lukas Devlen Fineday of Ponsford, Minnesota, looking for “any type of woman that’s down for anything.”

The BCA responded to the ad posing as a 15-year-old girl from Bemidji. Fineday allegedly still wanted to meet the girl for sex and a meeting was arranged at a local motel in Bemidji. He was arrested in Bemidji at a local WalMart where investigators found him before the meeting.

In case you’re wondering, the age of consent in Minnesota is 16, and even under the poorly named Romeo and Juliet laws a minor under the age of 16 can’t consent to sex with anyone more than 48 months older than they are. I guess 15 really does get you 20.
