Man Banned From Internet After Ordering Naked Craigslist Suitors For Neighbor

Screen Shot 2014-02-13 at 1.51.39 PMA Wisconsin judge has banned a Waterford man from using the Internet after he pulled a series of “perverted pranks” attempting to get his neighbor laid.

According to TMJ4, 31-year-old Jason Willis posted several Craigslist ads in November 2012 masquerading as his neighbor “Dawn.” He used Dawn’s full name, address, and pictures to lure men to her doorstep. Though none of the suitors were particularly dangerous, one showed up in nothing but a trench coat, a pompous move the “victim” Dawn finds offensive.

“He had my full name. He knew my address. And he said, ‘Oh, I got it off of Craigslist. You put an ad on there,” ‘Dawn tells reporters, officially baffled by how the Internet works.

Police arrested Willis after tracing the practical joke back to his computer. On Tuesday, he took a plea deal that forces him to disconnect from the Internet for 30 months. He’ll face at least a year and a half in prison for reconnecting.

Judge Allan Torhorst, who issued the dangerous judgement, claims Willis used the Internet “as a weapon” in this case. “To me, a public availability of the Internet—to use it the way he did—is unconscionable,” he said. “Everybody knows it’s wrong. He knew it was wrong. He admitted it.”

Dawn told reporters “his idea of a joke is much different than other peoples’ idea of a joke.”

    I’m a little shocked by this article. I’m not really sure why the word victim is in quotation marks and the words practical joke is not. And then to make a snide comment on how the “victim” doesn’t know how the internet works is unbelievable. She could have been attacked by one of these men that the man gave out her information to. I understand you view of this incident when you use words like the judge claims instead of the judge said but I’d be a little more careful of how you report things. For legal reasons.

    @bitemelo: I agree. It reads like “Big Deal, so some chick had a prank pulled on her.” This is a serious issue. I somehow doubt it was really just a joke. It takes a sick person to do what he did. I’m betting there was some form of sexual gratification and stalking going on with this man.

    Okay, am I missing something?

    I read the article three times and I can’t find anything remotely LGBT-related in it.

    Could somebody help me out?

    Read the article 3 times and still can’t figure out how it’s LGBT related.

    Siiiigh, there was no snark in these postings…so I guess I’ll do it.

    31?! Somebody’s lying.

    @Cam : oh yes, he is lying. :-P

    @GreatGatsby2011: @GreatGatsby2011:
    If you look closely, I believe he has ‘gay face’… or maybe he’s just a mouth breather.

    Me too. The only reason would be to show that straight people are crazy and perverted too? In which case, its really offensive to the LG community too, implying that we are crazy and perverted to start.

    Way to go Queerty!

    Two theories:

    1) (disturbing thought) – Maybe Queerty staffers are just used to sending each other CL hookups and think that’s normal behavior?

    2) (slightly less disturbing thought) – Maybe this is some kind of Queerty hazing ritual? The writer lost a bet and had to come up with the most LGBT-offensive, yet LGBT-inane post?

    @Cam: Ha. I hope if I ever get in trouble they use my internet age too:)
