(Scroll down for video) A woman sent a man to rape another woman as an act of revenge.
However, a judge dismissed the criminal charges after agreeing it was just a prank gone wrong.
Kathy Rowe of San Diego, California, was angry after a woman outbid her on a home she wanted to purchase.
Instead of looking for a new home, she allegedly began making the new homeowners’ lives a living hell.
According to a criminal complaint, Rowe pretended to be the homeowner and placed sexually-explicit advertisements online.
“Take me while I say no,” Rowe wrote in the advertisement. She told strange men to force their way into her house, and forcefully have sex with her.
Rowe’s advertisement labeled for the “Carmel Valley Freak Show,” was graphic and offered sexual favors for any man, while her husband was at work.
Two men took the advertisement seriously and actually contacted the homeowner. One man went over to the victim’s home twice.
Rowe has been charged with soliciting forcible rape and sodomy among other crimes.
Her attorney told the judge that it was all just “prankish behavior,” and she meant no harm to the homeowners. He added that his client sent written apologies to the homeowners.
The judge agreed with the attorney and dismissed the charges saying that their was not enough evidence showing that Rowe really wanted the men to sexually assault the other woman.
The district attorney’s office disagreed, and appealed the judge’s ruling. The appeals court reinstated the criminal charges and Rowe will have to head to court once again.
