Speaking of the casual encounters section, because you know we were, 56-year-old Martin Vohwinkel of Clark County, Nevada was sentenced to 10 years in prison. I originally posted about Vohwinkel here and here.

He was a Clark County fire captain who posted an and on the casual encounters section of craigslist where he was looking for sex with an underage girl. In the ad he said the younger the better. Luckily the 14-year-old girl who responded to his ad was the Henderson, Nevada police.

Vohwinkel pleaded guilty and part of the plea deal was that he could be sentenced up to 10 years. I’m glad to see that one of these creeps finally get the max even though the sentence is too light for me.

Once again though this shows that casual encounters needs to be monitored and that community policing on craigslist is just a myth.

Fire Captain Pleads Guilty In Sex Case:

I originally posted about 55-year-old Martin Vohwinkel here. He’s the fire captain from Henderson, Nevada who was busted for trying to set up a sex meeting with a 14-year-old girl on craigslist’s casual encounters section. The 14-year-old girl turned out to be the Henderson police.

He’s pleaded guilty to the charges against him and will be sentenced on December 17th. He’s only looking at 10 years which as usual is a joke. I doubt this was his first casual encounters rodeo.

Fire Captain Arrested In Sex Sting:

55-year-old Martin Vohwinkel, which no offense sounds like the name of a child molester, of Henderson, Nevada was arrested for using craigslist’s casual encounters section to try to set up a meeting with a minor for sex. Vohwinkel is also a captain of the Clark County Fire Department.

Vohwinkel allegedly placed an ad that said he was looking for sex with a young girl. As is usual in these cases the response to his ad came from the Henderson police posing as a 14-year-old girl. Vohwinkel allegedly said that he wanted to meet the girl ASAP and that the younger the better and that he was *shudder* horny.

The best part is when police set up the meeting and went to arrest him they called a number that Vohwinkel had provided the ‘girl’ and his phone rang.

Again this ‘allegedly’ happened on the craigslist casual encounters section. Where was the self policing by the craigslist community? Oh that’s right, there was none so the real police had to get involved.
