HARTFORD, WI (WTMJ/CNN) - A judge banned a Waterford, WI, man from using the internet after he used a neighbor's likeness in online personal ads.
"His idea of a joke is much different than other people's idea of a joke," said the victim, who wanted to only be referred to as "Dawn."
At first, Dawn had no idea her neighbor, Jason Willis, was up to no good.
When asked how she found out about it, Dawn said, "From one of the four men I believe came to the door."
The Waterford woman was shocked and surprised when a number of gentleman callers flocked to her doorstep. One was wearing nothing but a trench coat.
"I actually asked him where he got my name because he had my full name. He knew my address. And he said, 'Oh, I got it off of Craigslist. You put an ad on there.'"
Detectives discovered Dawn's picture and information on a number of personal ads. They arrested Willis for the crime. He took a plea deal and will serve 30 months probation, but he has to stay offline.
Why ban the man from using the internet? The judge in this case said the web was Willis' weapon. Taking that away is a way to disarm him and prevent this type of crime from happening again, according to the judge.
"If you want to drive drunk, you're not allowed to drive. To me, a public availability of the internet, to use it the way he did, is unconscionable," said Judge Pat Torhorst of the Racine County Circuit Court.
Torhorst believes Dawn needs extra protection in this case.
"It was necessary to protect the victim, who I viewed as particularly vulnerable," Torhorst said.
Dawn would have preferred a prison sentence, but she's hopeful Willis has learned his lesson.
"I didn't feel comfortable in my own house," Dawn said.
When asked if she thought it was a fair punishment, Dawn replied, "I don't know if I would say fair. But it's OK for now."
