Prior Record For Husband In NC Wife Rape Case

A North Carolina man who police say arranged on Craigslist for his wife to be raped by another man pleaded guilty last year to indecent exposure in Virginia.

Police say a judge sentenced the man to 30 days for the Chesterfield County, Va., misdemeanor.

Kannapolis police Sgt. Chris Nesmitt said Friday investigators are getting details on the Virginia case as they look into last weekend's assault of the man's wife in their home.

Police say the husband found the attacker through Craigslist, the online classified service under scrutiny for sexually explicit ads.

The husband faces first-degree rape and other charges. The Associated Press, which generally does not identify victims of sexual assault, is not naming the man to avoid identifying his wife.

Investigators in North Carolina are still trying to identify an alleged rapist they say a man found on Craigslist to assault his wife.

Police in Kannapolis say they are getting help from federal investigators as they probe computer and telephone records after arresting the
25-year-old husband.

The husband faces first-degree rape and other charges and is in jail under $200,000 bond. The Associated Press, which generally does not identify victims of sexual assault, is not naming the man to avoid identifying his wife.

Police say the wife called 911 Sunday and said a man with a knife raped her in the bedroom of their home about 25 miles northeast of Charlotte. Police say the husband was in the room at the time of the attack.

    I pray that the woman and kids find some peace after all this is over. My heart goes out to her. The husband should be put in prison for the rest of his life and the man who raped her also.

    That just sends chills down my spine, sick individuals all over the place. I hope they make him register as a sex offender and not let him around the children. If he'll do it when they're home who's to say he won't do something to them!

    I have seen these types of ad's before regarding rape/mock rape's of their spouse, etc. I have never understood what drive's an individual to want to see his or her other half with another person in the form of forced sexual assault. If you want to see how sick and perverted some people are, browse the classified ad's of the site listed in this story! People have everything from odd request, to down right SICK request like this one. I believe you have to be mentally ill or plain evil to want your wife raped!

    Angie, the sad thing is this rapist probably thinks of himself as having God in his life. On the topic, I hope they catch his accomplice quickly. My heart goes out to her and her children. I hope they get all the help that they are going to need to get through this.

    Thoughts and prayers go out to this woman. This man is sorry for doing such a thing as this and stupid for doing this by latting another man come into the house and get to his own wife. What makes it even more sad and stupid is that the children probably know this now.
