I originally posted about Douglas French here. He’s the 36-year-old jackhole that put an ad in craigslist for models aged 16-19 and had sex with a 17-year-old girl who applied for the ad. He also supplied her with drugs and alcohol. French had a previous arrest for shacking up with a 16-year-old runaway in Montana. He pleaded not guilty back in August but a judge found him guilty of using a child in a sexual display and sex abuse. He was sentenced to 15 years.
A convicted Portland-area sex offender who advertised for teenage “models” on the popular Web site craigslist was arrested Tuesday for allegedly having sex with a 17-year-old girl, authorities said.
Douglas Steven French, 36, is being held in the Washington County Jail. French faces charges of sex abuse and using a child in a display of sexually explicit conduct, said Sgt. David Thompson, spokesman for the Washington County Sheriff’s Office.
He said Washington County detectives learned that French had posted an advertisement on craigslist for “16 to 19-year-old models.” The name given under the listing was “Premier Modeling.”
The 17-year-old victim responded to French’s add and over the past month, French had been meeting with her on a regular basis, Thompson said. During that time, French allegedly provided her with alcohol and illegal drugs.
French was arrested in 2004 after being found in Montana with missing Molalla, Ore. girl Cynthia Lamb, who was 16 at the time. Lamb had been missing for nine months. She met French online and had moved to Montana with him, according to Thompson.
A sex offender who went on to strike again. Who would have thought?
