A man allegedly seeking retribution against an agent who helped put him behind bars faces an interstate stalking charge.
A man has been charged with stalking after he allegedly posted a fake Craigslist sex ad using an FBI agent's phone and address. Frederick Banks, 47, published the ad in retribution against the agent, who had investigated him more than a decade ago, court documents said.
The online ad identified the poster as a "married white boy" seeking a male sexual partner for himself and his wife - described as a "blonde gorgeous girl next door type". The agent, whose name is listed in court documents as "TP", helped investigate Banks in for selling fake and pirated computer software.
Authorities said Banks falsely claimed the agent held his girlfriend at gunpoint to get her to implicate him.
