If you’ll recall Jebidiah James Stipe, of Twentynine Palms, California is accused of positing an ad on craigslist posing as a woman he knows soliciting a rape fantasy that the victim of course didn’t really want. Ty Oliver McDowell of Wyoming is accused of committing the rape on the Casper, Wyoming woman. Both have been ordered to stand trial and they will be tried together. The trial is expected to start on May 24th.
I’m still amazed that there are people out there who think that a lot of women actually have rape fantasies and want them acted out by complete strangers on craigslist. I wouldn’t be surprised if McDowell actually thought what he was doing was consensual however just for the fact that he entered a woman’s house and raped a stranger shows that he’s more than a danger to society. He probably believes that the word gullible is not in the dictionary.
