A Cuba, MO man is behind bars after a Craigslist ad he posted did not go quite the way he had envisioned. 32-year-old Anthony Brinkman thought he had met the woman of his dreams! She was into three-ways, liked playing rough, was into “toys” and was perfectly willing to sexually assault an 11 year-old girl.
This human refuse posted an ad seeking someone who wanted to join him in traumatizing the girl, which was promptly forwarded to the Missouri Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force when a conscientious browser clicked “Report Abuse.”
STLToday reports that an undercover officer posing as a 27-year-old woman answered the ad. According to Detective Mike Slaughter, Brinkman told her that he wanted her to be his girlfriend who would join him in abusing his victim with sex toys. Brinkman sent the officer photos of the girl and posted them online.
They agreed to meet at a Cracker Barrel over 80 miles away in St. Louis. If they liked each other, the plan was to return to his home in Cuba where they would have their way with the child.
He was promptly arrested when as he pulled in to park. Detective Slaughter was horrified that he brought the girl with him.
“It’s usually just a lot of talk for most of these guys, but this guy actually brought the girl to the scene to go ahead with the next step of enacting it.”
Brinkman confessed to the crime and indicated to police that he “might” be in possession of child pornography.
Detective Slaughter says that if they “hadn’t gotten involved and someone bad had gotten in touch with him, something bad would have happened to that little girl.” He says that investigators do not believe that he has abused the girl in the past, but they plan to talk with her more.
Brinkman’s computers have been confiscated, and he is being held on a $100,000 cash only bond on charges of attempted statutory sodomy. Prosecutors will be seeking additional charges of sex trafficking a minor.
May he rot in hell.
