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.
