Craig's List Crime

Using Craig’s List to cause trouble could land you in prison.

Sandy Hausman reports on the conviction of a man who used the popular online site to get back at his ex-girlfriend and now faces time behind bars.

A Central Virginia man who used to work for the Library of Congress pled guilty this week to stalking and identification fraud – charges that could mean up to 15 years behind bars. 

61-year-old  Kenneth  Kuban used his office computer to harass his former girlfriend – putting more than 165 ads on Craig’s List between January and March.  Those ads listed his victim’s home address and said she was interested in sexual encounters.  More than a hundred men showed up at her door over the three-month period, including one with a crow bar – intent on prying open a security gate she had  installed.  Things got so bad that a sheriff’s deputy was assigned to guard the home. 

Kuban will be sentenced in November.
