First I’d like to commend KTVB in Idaho for actually using the word rape in their story. Too many media outlets are replacing the word rape with terms like ‘had sex’. It’s good to see at least one media outlet telling it like it is.
Anyway police in Oregon have arrested 20-year-old Nicholas Longo of Brookings, Oregon on charges that he allegedly raped a 16-year-old girl from Boise that he met on social network site MeetMe.
Police say that Longo lived in Idaho at the time of the rape in March and invited the girl to a party after meeting her on MeetMe. The victim says that Longo raped her at the party while Longo says that the sex was consensual. Never mind the fact that under Idaho law no one under the age of 18 can legally consent to sex. So consensual or not it’s still rape under the eyes of the law.
Police also say that Longo moved to Oregon shortly after the rape took place. That’s not suspicious at all.
Now cue all his loser friends and pedo-defenders who will more than likely blame the victims.
My advice to parents is keep your kids off of MeetMe, formerly known as MyYearbook. I hate to use an old joke but it really should be called MeatMe because it really is nothing more than a hook up site.
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 have 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.
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.”
I originally posted about Misael Juarez here. He’s the 18-year-old from California who was extradited to Idaho on charges that he kidnapped a 15-year-old girl, had sex with the girl and convinced her to move in with him.
Now Juarez’s mommy is speaking out for him and guess what she’s saying. She’s using the ‘she said she was 18’ defense for her own son.
Juarez’s mother sees things differently. She insists the Boise girl lied about her age, telling them all she was also 18.
“I know that my son did nothing wrong, and I am sad for him,” Isidra Garcia said through tears.
It doesn’t matter if she lied or not. If she’s 15 there’s no two ways around it.
I’ve posted about Douglas Winberry, Lindsey McKeehan and Colby Watson of Boise, Idaho before. They’re the trio who are accused of having sex with a 16-year-old girl, giving her meth, and pimping her out on craigslist.
Back in August the trio all pleaded not guilty. However Lindsey McKeehan has recently changed her plea to guilty.
The Ada County Prosecutor’s office says Lindsey McKeehan has now plead guilty to two counts of felony injury to a child: one count of giving a teen meth, and then the second charge is for having sexual contact with a teen and letting a man watch.
As part of her plea McKeehan will testify against her ex-boyfriend Watson. Even with her plea she’s still looking at 10 years behind bars.
