article imageWisconsin man arrested, posed as neighbour in Craigslist sex ad

By Arthur Weinreb     May 24, 2013 in Crime
Waterford - It was a joke. But neither the neighbour who had men coming to her door seeking sex or the Waterford, Wisconsin police saw the humour in it.
On Nov. 26, 2012, a man kept coming to the door of a Waterford woman and ringing her doorbell. She became alarmed and called the Racine Sheriff's Office. When officers arrived they found the man who was wearing a coat but nothing else. The man told officers he was answering a sex ad he saw posted on Craigslist.
Jason T. Willis, 30, is alleged to have posted six sex ads on Craigslist inviting men to go to his neighbour's house for sex and he told officers he placed the ads as a joke. They were not amused. Willis was arrested and faces one count of felony identity theft.
In Wisconsin, the definition of identity theft includes using the personal information of another person for the purpose of harming that person's reputation. When prosecuted as a Class H felony, the crime is punishable by a maximum jail sentence of six years and a $10,000 fine.
The allegations against Willis are not unique. In March 2013, a Library of Congress employee, Kenneth Kuban, 61, allegedly placed an ad in the "Casual Encounters" section on Craigslist, posing as a former 64-year-old girlfriend. At the time the ad was placed, Kuban was subject to restraining orders to stay away from his former girlfriend.
The ad said a "senior lady" was seeking "a gentleman in his 50s that is Hung and can give me some pleasure." The ad included the address of the woman's farm and told potential suitors how to enter the property.
Men, many from other states, flocked to the woman's property looking for sex. She was forced to have a security system installed and placed signs around her property.
Willis is being held on $1,000 bond and in scheduled to appear in court on May 28.
