Attorney Rod Rosenstein told The Examiner. In recent months, Craigslist has come under fire from law enforcement agencies across the country for its perceived role in the sex industry.

In one case, year-old Philip Markoff is accused of shooting Julissa Brisman at a luxury Boston hotel.

The company said it would manually review every advertisement posted in the new space. According to the indictment, Thompson and Bell posted their last advertisement for the year-old on the Web site in April, before the erotic services section was taken down.

The two instructed the teens on pricing for different sexual activities, court documents said. They sometimes told them to lie about their ages and pretend to be adults. They gave them marijuana. They provided them with clothing, food, shelter and condoms.
