Waukesha County Sheriffs in Wisconsin arrested 29-year-old Aaron L. Martin of Oshkosh for allegedly soliciting underage girls for sex on craigslist. According to investigators Martin’s ad said “$$$ younger the better $$ cant host but can travel or in my car.” Of course, when he went to the prerequisite meeting place of a fast food joint to meet a 14-year-old girl he was instead met by the Sheriff’s Department.
As I’ve said before when these scumbags are caught it’s usually not their first rodeo. Police say that Martin just about admitted as much…
Martin told investigators he posted ads on Craigslist for years. He admitted to making contact with girls and paying them for sexual favors. He also admitted he drove to Sussex to pay a 14-year-old girl $50 for oral sex, adding that he didn’t normally meet underage girls.
Right, so why did the ad say the younger, the better then? The better question is why wasn’t this ad flagged on craigslist by its users? That’s because their users are basically just like Martin. Craigslist could easily monitor the seedier parts of their site like casual encounters, but they choose not to. I guess they’d rather see underage girls molested than moderating their site.
