Jebidiah James Stipe, a 27-year-old Marine, has been charged with conspiracy to commit first-degree sexual assault along with other crimes.
Fox News is reporting that a Marine from Twentynine Palms, California has been charged with conspiracy to commit first-degree sexual assault amongst other crimes. Jebidiah James Stipe made his first appearance in a Wyoming court Tuesday where prosecutors charged him with the rape of a former girlfriend using the website Craigslist. The accused allegedly posted an advertisement on Dec. 5 of last year using the Internet site pretending to be the Casper, Wyo woman whom he briefly dated. The ad asked for a “real aggressive man with no concern for women” with the intent of carrying out a fantasy rape scenario. Also charged was Ty Oliver McDowell, 26, of Mills, Wyo who responded to the ad. McDowell was charged with five felonies, including first-degree sexual assault. Stipe allegedly gave him the woman’s picture and address when McDowell responded to the fake ad.
