42-year-old Kenneth Rex Church, of York, Pennsylvania, is being held on $500K bond for allegedly soliciting sex from minors who he met through craigslist. The first giveaway that Church may be a creeper was the ad he allegedly placed in the ‘casual encounters’ section of craigslist.
“I’m a middle aged man who has just gotten to the point where all I can think about are younger girls for sex.”
Later in the ad, he is accused of writing, “Young age is all that matters.”
Not a lot of wiggle room in that ad, so to speak.
Next came the texts to the 14-year-old girl who responded to his ad…
“I’m nervous cuz in not old enough. Cant I get into trouble??????”
Church, according to the complaint, responded, “Not as much as I can.”
“Since I’m an adult I should know better. If I were found out then I would be most likely arrested and charged with breaking a lot of laws.
To everyone else, you’d be the victim of an adult preying on you and seducing you (that would be me).”
SPOILER ALERT, the girl was an undercover investigator who probably had the easiest arrest of their career since Church seems to know exactly what kind of trouble he could have gotten himself into.
Again, there’s your typical denizen of the casual encounters section posting an ad that did not get flagged by craigslist’s community police, yet poor poor craigslist says they can’t spare a dime for moderators. Oh that $6M second house that Craig Newmark bought in New York? He must have got the money from returning soda cans or something. Move along, nothing to see here.
