Here is another bizarre case reported by the Associated Press involving Craigslist. A man with ties to Minnesota is being charged with rape. The woman’s husband allegedly arranged the attack on Craigslist.
Rodney Liverman Sr. age 39 lived near Lindstrom, a town northeast of the Twin Cities for about twelve years and owned a computer business. He moved to North Carolina and there he answered an ad on Craigslist from a man who advertised to have his wife raped. When Liverman showed up, the husband of the woman watched as Liverman raped his wife at knifepoint. Liverman was known as an abusive husband so this crime was not out of the ordinary for him. Both men are in jail with bonds over $200,000.
Recently, Craigslist has been in the news regarding scams, prostitution and even murders. Owners of Craigslist are allegedly working on cleaning up their site to make sure that it stops illegal activity. However, in this Internet age, it seems that criminals and criminal activity is still easy to find.
