Man tries twice using Craigslist to have wife raped


A 32-year-old Twin Falls, Idaho, man faces charges after admitting he solicited two men to rape his wife.

An Idaho man who used Craigslist to solicit two men to rape his wife awaits charges behind bars.

Using the “casual encounters” section of the classified ads website, the suspect told the men to force their way into her home and rape the woman no matter how much she fought them.

The 32-year-old Twin Falls man isn’t named to protect the victim’s identity.

He now faces charges of solicitation of rape and solicitation of burglary, the Times-News reported.

According to court reports, the woman was home alone Friday when the doorbell rang.

A man she didn’t know asked her name, barged into the home and chased her into a bedroom, where she retrieved a handgun.

She fired one bullet, but it missed the suspect, who then fled.

The next night, the same thing happened; only this time she managed to hold another man at bay with a gun until police arrived.

The second man told police he was responding to an ad, and offered his phone and computer records as proof.

“The person posting the ad told him she wanted to be forcibly raped as that was a fantasy of hers,” the police report said, according to the Times-News.

The husband then told police he set up the encounters.

The suspect – arraigned Monday – awaits his July 27 court day on a $100,000 bond.

“(The second man) was told to force his way inside and rape the woman there and not stop no matter how much she resisted,” the police report said.

According to The Associated Press, two men received 60-year sentences in Wyoming three years ago for a similar scheme.
