A woman has been charged with responding to “rape fantasy” advertisements on Craigslist.
According to the prosecutors, Michelle Suzanne Hadley pretended to be the pregnant wife of the man she had dated from 2013 until 2015. The ex-boyfriend is a U.S. Marshals Service Agent.
Hadley told other men to visit the home of her ex-boyfriend and assault his pregnant wife.

As reported by CBS News, Hadley was held on a $1 million bail pending her arraignment scheduled to take place on August 19.
In a statement the investigators said, “Hadley is accused of telling the responders that the victim wanted the responders to have forcible sexual intercourse with her, even if she screamed or resisted.” They referred to the victim as Jane Doe.
“Several of the responders showed up at Jane Doe’s residence with the intention of raping the victim but did not succeed. One responder arrived at Jane Doe’s residence and physically attacked the victim before she was able to call for help and the man fled the scene.”
Hadley sent the victim emails – some of which included threats to the life of the victim and her husband and inappropriate comments about the latter – between June 6, 2016, and July 13, 2016, according to the press release. Hadley sent these emails through different computers and servers so the activity would not be traced back to her.
On June 6, Hadley was given a protective order that disallowed her from contacting the victim. However, Hadley violated the order and is accused of stalking the victim.
Hadley was arrested on June 24. Although she was released on a $100,000 bail, prosecutors say she did not stop sending the victim emails and responding to ads on Craigslist soliciting “rape fantasies.”
The defendant has been charged with stalking, stalking despite a restraining order, assault with the intent to commit a sexual offense during a first-degree burglary, and making criminal threats plus six counts of attempted forcible rape. If convicted, she could face a maximum sentence of life in prison.
