Despite my attempt at an alliterative headline, Spencer was actually first noticed by the FBI who were tipped off to him by an unnamed witness. The witness claimed Spencer traded child porn with him over Kik. Spencer also reportedly told the witness “his preference is for children approximately four to eight-years-old”.
It just goes to show you not every pedophile is a dirty old man in a coat, they can also be fresh-faced teenagers who you pay to babysit your kids while they make child porn. As my cohort Lady Gray always tells me, pedophiles constantly try to place themselves in job positions that allow them easy access to children. In this day and age if you have kids that require babysitting, you should have at least one hidden security camera in the home.
UPDATE:A subsequent article about Spencer’s arrest says he was studying to become an become an elementary school teacher, furthering our opinion that pedophiles often try to place themselves in positions that allow them access to children.
UPDATE II: Shortly after Spencer’s arrest, another babysitter was arrested for allegedly working in conjunction with Spencer. He is 24-year-old Bryan Petersen of Tiburon, California. Between the two of them they are said to have produced over 10,000 images of child porn.
UPDATE 7/27/2017:Petersen pleaded guilty to child porn charges, He’s looking at 110 years behind bars when he’s sentenced in November.
There’s not a lot of detail on this story, but federal authorities say that Shane Michael Aurand was working as a babysitter in Buffalo, New York, when he allegedly shared child porn with an undercover agent on the mobile messaging app Kik. To answer your next question, sadly, it is believed that Aurand produced the child porn using a child he was babysitting. He also allegedly said that he would send the agent more child porn if he received some in return. Not to get off topic, but he sounds like the kind of babysitter someone would hire off of craigslist, but I digress.
42-year-old Daniel Benson Billman, of Aransas Pass, Texas, pleaded guilty yesterday to production of child porn charges and faces up to 50 years in prison. As part of Billman’s plea deal he admitted to molesting a 7-year-old girl who was in his care. Billman was watching the girl because he advertised his baby sitting services on craigslist. He is said to have recorded himself molesting the girl.
Why on Earth would anyone use the services of a baby sitter that advertised on craigslist, especially one that’s a middle-aged man? That just screams creep factor to me. I know, you’re probably a craigslist baby sitter who’s a nice guy. I don’t care. I would never use those services in a million years.
Reports say that the FBI posed as a father who was offering their child for sex on craigslist when they were contacted by Bryan.
For more than a year, the FBI says Bryan has been chatting online with an undercover agent posing as the father of an 8-year-old boy. Investigators say Bryan spelled out what he’d like to do to the child saying, “I just want to smell him and taste him.”
The feds set up a meeting place where Bryant was arrested. They’re also requesting help from the public if they had any kind of baby sitting contact with Bryan.
The CETF is asking anyone who has information about this matter or who may have hired Bryan for the above services to contact the FBI Tampa Field Office at 1-866-838-1153 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
What really surprised me was the reaction by his landlord. He didn’t approve of what Bryan did but…
“I thought he was very dedicated to the children he took care of. And he loved his nannying. Sure, I knew he was getting jobs by posting, but everyone uses Craigslist. It didn’t bring up any red flags or anything,” the landlord tells 10 News.
Yes, everyone uses craigslist, especially predators.
24-year-old Ashley Jackson was supposed to be sentenced in the death of 12-year-old Serena Garrett. Jackson brought the girl to her home in Lincoln, Nebraska to baby sit her twin infants. Sounds like the responsible thing to do right? Well, Jackson brought Serena to her home sop Jackson could smoke meth with her friends. She also supplied Serena and her other guests with booze and painkillers. Apparently Jackson really didn’t grasp the concept of a baby sitter. Serena was not only sexually assaulted by a 20-year-old party goer but she died of an overdose of painkillers.
In December Jackson pleaded no contest to Serena’s death but when it came time to be sentenced Jackson allegedly no showed the hearing. Police found her last night hiding in a trailer (go figure) that was parked on the property of a construction equipment company.
Unfortunately Jackson is only looking at five years for Serena’s death. Back in the 1950s you could be eligible for the death penalty if you were a drug dealer and someone died from your drugs. We should never have stopped that practice.
Wow, it’s just a veritable cornucopia of craigslist creepers today isn’t it?
This particular creeper is 22-year-old Joseph Alan Geissinger, of Muskegon, Michigan. He was arrested by his local police department for allegedly trying to solicit a 16-year-old girl through craigslist to star in a porno that he was producing. The girl had posted an ad on craigslist offering her services as a baby sitter.
Police say that Geissinger just straight up asked her if she wanted to be in his ‘movie’. Luckily the girl told her mother who first posed as the girl then eventually contacted police. Police do not believe he’s actually made any videos but believe he may have contacted other girls.
Anyone who believes they have been contacted by Geissinger under that screen name is asked to contact the Muskegon Police Department at (231) 724-6750 or Silent Observer 72-CRIME; or Muskegon Police Detective Kory Luker, who is actively working the case, at (231) 724-6755.
He’s looking at 20 years.
Now the girl and the mom did the right thing by contacting police however under no circumstance should you allow your son or daughter to post an ad on craigslist for baby sitting. This isn’t the first time that some predator approached someone through a non-sexual ad. The one story that always sticks out in my mind is the one about the handyman who was approached by someone who wanted to have sex with his kids. These are the kind of dregs that permeate craigslist. Why people still consider to business on it is beyond me.
In Carlisle, Pennsylvania police arrested 37-year-old Lewis A. Dopp for allegedly having sex with 5 girls ages 16 and 17 that he found on craigslist. However he did not find them on craigslist the way you think he would have. He found them because ether the girls had placed ads for their baby sitting services on craigslist or had responded to Dopp’s ad for a baby sitter.
Between Oct. 1, 2009, and June 30 Dopp would spend weekends with the teens at his home, according to a news release.
During that time, Dopp provided the teens with alcohol and had sexual contact with three of the teens when they were 15 and 16 years old, police said.
Reportedly he had one of the teens record him having sex with one of the others. It’s hard to believe that this went unnoticed for 8 months. Dopp supposedly only put a stop to it because some of the girls were smoking weed and he did not approve of that. A creeper with standards. Who would have guessed?
No word on if Dopp actually had a child that was in need of sitting.
But who in the blue hell allows their 16 or 17-year-old daughter to post an ad for baby sitting on craigslist? Apparently the kind of parent who doesn’t care about their kids getting molested.
I originally posted about Aaron Jay Lemon here. He’s the 23-year-old man from Little Canada, Minn. who answered a craigslist ad to baby sit for a 2-year-old girl. He used the girl to make child porn. Back in December he pleaded guilty to child porn charges.
Today he was sentenced to 20 years in federal prison and will be registered as a sex offender for the rest of his life.
Why anyone would use craigslist to find a baby sitter is beyond me considering the type of person that usually lurks there.
23-year-old Aaron Jay Lemon of Little Canada, MN has pleaded guilty to child pornography charges. He answered a craigslist ad for a baby sitter in 2007 but in reality he was nothing more than a filthy pedophile who likes to make child porn.
