Iowan Stan Syring, a married father of two, told an undercover police officer he’d throw in $25 on top of oral or anal sex in trade for a boat trailer. Trailers like these are typically used to haul bass boats behind pick-up trucks, and can run anywhere between a few hundred to several thousand dollars.
The Craigslist post by Syring, a married, 37-year-old father, noted that the boat trailer was needed “asap,” and that the poster “will trade for sex if need be.”
After Marion Police Department officers learned of the online ad, they exchanged e-mails with the Craigslist poster discussing whether the offered act would be oral or anal sex. The parties agreed that detail would be settled when they met in person, according to police.
During a subsequent meeting with a male undercover officer, Syring “offered his services as a partner in a sex act in exchange for a boat trailer,” according to a District Court criminal complaint.
