For putting a phony ad on CraigsList, a Wisconsin man was literally banned from going online. He used his neighbor’s address to post a false ad asking men to come to her house to have sex with her.

As a result, 31-year-old Jason Willis now has 30 days to disconnect all his online services as part of his 30-month probation ordered by Racine County Circuit Court Judge Allan Torhorst. If Willis violates the order, he could be sentenced to at least 18 months in prison.

Willis was found guilty on Tuesday of posting the November 2012 Craigslist ad inviting men to come to the neighbor’s house to have sex with her. The post resulted in four men going to the woman’s home, one of them clad only in a trench coat. Police discovered Willis also used the woman’s personal information for other fake personal ads.

“He had my full name. He knew my address,” the woman, who identified herself as “Dawn,” told WTMJ about the uninvited visitor. “And he said, ‘Oh, I got it off of Craigslist. You put an ad on there,’ [Willis’] idea of a joke is much different than other peoples’ idea of a joke.”
