Police in Abilene, Texas arrested 33-year-old Jody Lee Kirklin of Early, Texas on charges of allegedly soliciting a 13-year-old girl for sex on craigslist.
Police aren’t saying if this was part of a sting operation but what we do know is that Kirklin allegedly set up a meeting with the girl at a park where he was arrested. When he was arrested he was found to have had a gun in his car. I realize that it’s Texas but it does make me wonder what exactly his intentions were if the girl was at the meeting instead of police.
Police didn’t say what section of craigslist the ad was on but one could safely assume that it was the casual encounters section. To which I repeat that the casual encounters section at the very least requires moderation since these are the kind of predators that lurk there.
Parents, I wouldn’t let your kids roam free on craigslist.
