One warm June evening, he began poking around the "Casual Encounters" section of Craigslist, where he found an ad promising a novel erotic situation.
He was. But when he e-mailed the address in the ad, Gennette received a quick response from a woman named Amber, making clear that only one of the sisters was He sent Amber a photo of himself with his pet possum. Amber sent back a photo showing two young women on a boat.
Gennette and Amber chatted for a while over e-mail, sharing weekend plans. Gennette suggested the sisters come over to see the possum, which was recovering from veterinary surgery to her "female parts.
But the older sister made clear that "we host only," and she kept pushing Gennette for details of what exactly he might want to do with younger sister Erin. Gennette : hmmm, maybe you can twist my arm, lol I have some things I need to do tomorrow am, and since you cant come here Amber : pursuaded????
Gennette : well im sure you could figure something out on how to pursuade me, im up for anything dear. Amber : we like a man that will tell us want he wants to do, not us doing all the work.
Gennette : oh I wouldn't let you do all the work, duh, lol but while driving my car, i d have to focus on the road for sure, when do you want to get together? Gennette appeared reticent about actually following through, talking about needing "persuasion" and wanting to "keep things clean so to speak, lol" when it came to the little sister.
But Amber continued to press, asking:. Amber : like what????
Gennette : prep her? Amber : u r right. Despite the obvious warning s, Gennette continued the conversation and appeared to come around to the idea of sexual activity with Erin—but the exact nature of this activity remained vague.
Gennette told Amber that he would show her special attention "with my tongue," and Amber pressed yet again for information about "lil sis. Two nights after responding to Amber's ad, Gennette agreed to meet the sisters at their home.
But he refused to promise anything more explicit than "a lot of smiles," so Amber herself got more explicit—and also suggested that Gennette was a coward. At 6pm, Gennette responded, "I will bring those," and he promised to be "easy and gentle and you can help me.
Amber then agreed that he could come over and provided an address, so Gennette hopped into his gray Mustang to make the minute drive. When he arrived, he walked up to the house and knocked.
Burly policemen in bulletproof vests burst out of the door, dragged Gennette back inside the house, and forced him to the ground. When he arose, he was in handcuffs—and charged as a sex offender.
There had been no Amber and no Erin. While there, his name appeared repeatedly in local s about the police sting—dubbed Operation Blue Shepherd—that had caught him and 24 others.
According to a news at the time, "An officer said most of the suspects admitted they were coming inside for sex. One said he was actually coming to chastise the parents.
Another said he was coming to play Dungeons and Dragons. It's successful that we got 25 people off the street, but I'm also disappointed there were 25 people willing to do this type of an act. Amber : do u realize that its me and my lil sis Gennette appeared reticent about actually following through, talking about needing "persuasion" and wanting to "keep things clean so to speak, lol" when it came to the little sister.
But Amber continued to press, asking: Amber : what r u going to do to us Gennette : things that are pleasurable, believe me, lol Amber : like what???? Nate Anderson Nate is the deputy editor at Ars Technica, where he oversees long-form feature content and writes about technology law and policy.
