How sad is it that I thought this story was a repeat?
Anyway 25-year-old Brandon Marks of Rancho Cordova, California was recently sentenced to 12 years in prison on child solicitation and child porn charges. Last year Marks posted an ad on craigslist seeking children’s underwear. I’m going to assume that he didn’t want still in the shrink-wrapped package of 3.
Sacramento police responded to Marks ad posing as a 12-year-old girl. During that time Marks sent child porn to the ‘girl’ and police arranged a meeting between Marks and the girl. Marks was then arrested at the meeting at a Sacramento motel.
Marks will also have 40 years of supervised release once he’s released from prison which knowing California will be early.
Seriously craigslist, is this the kind of clientele you want to be known for? If the craigslist founders are so altruistic then why do they not want to protect their own users. Come on craigslist, take back your site from the predators and pedophiles.
