Woman charged with ‘dirty talk’ ad

A Wisconsin woman faces criminal charges for a post on Craigslist that invited men to call her ex-boyfriend and talk dirty to him.

Kari Heath of Strum allegedly posted pictures of her ex along with the ad after they had a fight, the Eau Claire Leader-Telegram reported. He called police after getting a call at work from a man who said he was calling about the Craigslist ad and who hung up when the boyfriend said he did not know anything about it.

The boyfriend became suspicious of Heath when he saw the photographs, which he did not believe anyone else had access to, the newspaper reported. He told police that she sent him a text message allegedly admitting placing the ad.

Heath could face as much as three years in prison if she is convicted of causing harm by identity theft.
