Lessons from Craigslist: There's No Law Against a 'Sexy Dance'
A strange not-a-crime took place earlier this week in Ladera Ranch in Orange County involving a man, Craigslist, and a disappointing "sexy dance."It seems a man used the online marketplace to book a woman to perform a "sexy dance" for him, for $200 cash up front, according to the OC Register. But when the lady showed up he balked, blaming her false advertising: "The woman that arrived was older than the girl in the picture."
His solution? Send her off with $20 gas money for her troubles, but demand she return the $180 to him. No dice. She left with all the $200, and no "sexy dance."
The man was mad...and so was his mom. The pair contacted the authorities, but they didn't exactly score with them, either. Despite claiming the not-so-sexy dancer took off without "providing proper services," the police department's hands were tied, and no report was filed. The police explained: "no one was arrested because there is no law against a 'sexy dance.'" There's a lesson in here somewhere...
