Portland craigslist rapist sentenced to less than 8 years

I originally posted about Kurtis Raymond Steltz here.

At the time of his arrest back in August he was accused of responding to an ad for a craigslist masseuse and forced the woman at gunpoint to give him oral sex at several locations before striking her and choking her and raping her on a park table.

For being such a violent predator Steltz was convicted of one count of first degree sex abuse, and one count of first degree sodomy for a sentence of 7 1/2 years.

The sex abuse charge carries a sentence of 75 months; and sodomy a sentence of 90 months. The sentences will be served concurrently.

Sure, lets give a violent rapist concurrent sentences so he can spend less time in jail.

Also notice that the article I linked to never mentioned the word rape once.

craigslist rape reported in Portland

Rape suspect arrested for attack on Craigslist exotic masseuse:

In what seems to be the crime du jour on craigslist since erotic services was changed another masseuse has been reportedly raped this time in Portland, Oregon.

Police arrested 26-year-old Kurtis Raymond Steltz for allegedly raping a woman who was offering her services for exotic massages on craigslist.

Police say that Steltz forced the woman at gunpoint to give him oral sex at several locations before striking her and choking her and raping her on a park table.

Isn’t it amazing how criminals adapt to craigslist’s cosmetic changes?
