Prosecutor: Man posted ad on Craigslist to prostitute 3-year-old

BOISE, Idaho (KBOI) - A 39-year-old Boise man has been charged with posting a Craigslist ad advertising sex with a 3-year-old toddler.

Ada County Prosecutors say Jason Lloyd Schaber posted several Craigslist ads online seeking sex for himself as well as the child. One of sex ads stated "desperate times calls for desperate measures."

"The facts in this case are quite disturbing," prosecutors said in Schaber's initial court appearance Friday.

One of the ads, prosecutors say, had a graphic description of the prostitution plans with the child.

"Hurry before your once in a lifetime opportunity passes you by," the ad stated.

The advertisements were apparently spotted by a local citizen who then alerted police.

Schaber, who said he has two children, has been charged with felony lewd conduct with a child as well as soliciting a minor for prostitution.

Prosecutors say a laptop was confiscated from Schaber's residence that featured multiple images and videos of graphic child porn. On the media were 2-4 year-old children being sexually molested by grown men, officials say.

Officials say there are potentially other victims who are being treated for injuries and being interviewed. Additional charges are forthcoming, according to prosecutors.

When asked by a judge whether he understood the charges, Schaber replied, "yup."

Schaber has been issued a $1 million bond and has a preliminary hearing scheduled for June 15.

The child, who is known to Schaber, is in the custody of the state.
