Idaho Man Advertised Three-Year-Old Girl for Prostitution on Craigslist

Man who posted toddler sex ad on Craigslist gets 30 years

Jason Lloyd Shaber, a 41-year-old Boise man who pleaded guilty to placing a Craigslist ad offering sex with a 3-year-old girl that he also sexually abused, was sentenced to 30 years in federal prison followed by lifetime supervised release — after pleading guilty in May to sexual exploitation of children by producing and distributing child pornography.

According to the plea agreement, the investigation of Schaber’s activities began in April, 2012, after Boise Police were contacted by a person who saw a Craigslist advertisement offering a 3-year-old child for prostitution. Officials say Schaber, the father of two, 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.” Another ad, 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

Investigators worked with Craigslist and Google and traced the ads back to Schaber in mid-May, according to reports. Boise Police investigators obtained a warrant to search Schaber’s home, which they executed on May 31, 2012.

Schaber, who was issued a $1 million dollar bond. has been in custody since his arrest.

The plea agreement states that Schaber produced 26 sexually-explicit images and videos of female minors who were less than six years of age — and distributed child pornography that he had produced himself , or that he had obtained from the Internet. The images and videos depicted actual and simulated intercourse, oral sex and the lascivious exhibition of the genitals and pubic area of the minors, according to the plea agreement, reports said.

“Mr. Schaber well deserves the lengthy sentence the Court imposed,” said Olson. “His horrific conduct victimized an innocent child. I applaud the quick and efficient work of the ICAC (Internet Crimes Against Children) investigators in this case. We hope for the ongoing recovery of the victims in this case.”

The case included investigators from the Boise Police Department, the Ada County Sheriff’s Department, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations, the Ada County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office, and other agencies.

Schaber was originally charged in Idaho’s 4th District Court before the case moved to federal court. A grand jury indicted him on 23 federal charges, most of them related to making and distributing child pornography.

The case was brought as part of Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative launched in May 2006 by the Department of Justice to combat the growing epidemic of child sexual exploitation and abuse.

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

  1. He needs to be executed

  2. They started to investigate in April and got him at the end of May, could this not be speeded up somehow? Makes me sick!

  3. Child sex-trafficking is a truly evil and vile thing that has permiated its way into all corners of the globe. This epidemic of evil crosses all social & economic boundaries. Once a person Knows, You can’t Not know anymore! To put an end to this evil…each who become aware..must step up to participate with spreading aweness & fighting for those that cannot defend themselves. Not doing anything is the only support these evil people count on.
    If you don’t know how you can help…seek out an organization already in the fight and ask what it is you can do to start. You can be the difference!

  4. 30 years was not long enough..he should have his thing cut off while watching with no means of pain relief.the sick sucker needs to rot in hell.

  5. Now, now, now, folks, you can’t be saying things like “vile” and “evil”, nor can you be wishing for this poor pedophile to be castrated or executed. He has his rights, and pedophilia is (at least according to advocates now clamoring for its legalization) simply another “sexual preference” that we must respect support and (if the current push in the LBGT arena is any indicator) publicly promote as just another lifestyle choice.

    • really?? you are disgusting and are probably a pedophile yourself child molesters are evil and deserve to castrated and then executed and then burn in hell for eternity!!!!!

    • Tom, I am a master of sarcasm. Could have written the same thing. It is best to laugh than cry. But most people read words at their face value.
      HOWEVER– if you are serious, I hope for your soon death, of course. Yes, it is going to become legally imposed upon us all that we must all engage in homo/perverted practices or face prison if maniacs continue to write all of our laws. Problem is we are electing them.

  6. Where the hell is the mother?

  7. vigilante justice

    WTH?!…Disgusting …people with these kinds if needs Or feelings ARE NOT NORMAL…no Tom they are not normal & neither are you for supporting it.I wish for vigilante justice. May those that do this kind of stuff face their worst fears…it’s only a matter of time.

  8. I only wish one thing for this animal…… 30 minutes with him alone after being off my medicine for a couple weeks!!!! 30 minutes would take care of his “sexual preference”. And if that can’t happen, according to felons now out of prison, it’s refreshing to know he will get justice in prison. A few days incarcerated, he will have no more “sexual preference”. May justice be served.

  9. What kind of life is that poor baby going to have? And I wonder how many other children he has abused. Their lives are ruined, their innocence taken away. May he live his life in prison as a prostitute.. that still won’t be justice enough for his victims.

  10. All I can say as an adult myself having gone through sexual abuse at the same age I think that all pedos should never have the chance to leave prison, as once they do they tend to disappear into the back ground and some how manage to abuse again or get off on child porn sites.
    Also Tom until you know someone who has suffered abuse in person you should keep your perfectic opinions to yourself because anyone who says what you did is someone who has the same sick mind of a offender themself.
    How can you even think it let alone say it that its a personal lifestyle, that’s like saying anyone who likes sex with animals has the right to their own sexual choice.
    I could go on but I am too mad to say any more that would be write able .

  11. Like I said . Need to put all rapist pedo’s in an island with shark infested water. Leave them there let them rape each other and leave innocent babies alone .
