Deputies: Man Tried to Meet Girl, 14, For Sex:

Not a whole lot of details on this one but there doesn’t really need to be. It’s just more of the same for craigslist.

35-year-old Robert Mark Hall of Clearwater, Florida was recently arrested for allegedly soliciting sex from a 14-year-old girl on craigslist. Of course the girl turned out to be the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office.

I could throw a quote in here I guess…

“Over the course of a two week period, Hall sent inappropriate messages to the undercover detective soliciting sexual favors,” a sheriff’s office spokesperson said in a media release.

Two weeks are a long time to get an adult to try to get an adult to have sex let alone a 14-year-old. Apparently pedophile predators possess patience. Ooh, more alliteration.

It’s sad really that I’m so ambivalent about this post but it does show how common of an occurrence this is on craigslist. Again they haven’t really cleaned up their site and they need to moderate it.
