Man pleads guilty in Craigslist assaults

A Bladensburg man pleaded guilty in D.C. Superior Court on Friday to charges of sexually assaulting four women he met through their Craigslist postings.

Edgar D. Romero, 24, also pleaded guilty to first-degree sexual abuse while armed, one count of first-degree burglary and one count of robbery while armed involving the women, whom he met in the “erotic services” section of the Web site between Dec. 12, 2008, and Feb. 20, 2009.

Prosecutors said Romero met each victim at a hotel in the District. He, along with accomplices, bound each victim with cords or duct tape and stole items such as money, cellphones, laptops and credit cards.

Romero is scheduled to be sentenced by Judge Michael L. Rankin in December. He faces 30 years in prison, according to prosecutors.

I don't know how people get themselves into these situations knowing from the experience of others, the dangers involved. Don't go looking for trouble, you'll find it and don't be in the wrong place at the wrong time.
