U.S. Air Marshall Lecheton “Omar” Settles, 30, was arrested and fired from his job for allegedly raping a woman at gunpoint in Seattle.
The woman was an escort from the Village Voice Media owned Backpage.com.
Settles allegedly pulled the gun on the woman wearing nothing but his Air Marshall’s badge and said “U.S. Marshal, you have to do what I tell you” before raping her.
I still don’t get how these sites like Backpage and craigslist can claim that they’re not party to these crimes as they do nothing to discourage it.
