EVERETT, Wash. (AP) — Police say a Marysville man has pleaded guilty to raping his 6-year-old stepdaughter after allegedly advertising the girl online.

The Everett Daily Herald reports that police are trying to identify others who may have answered the Craigslist ads that were posted by the man and his wife.

Investigators recovered at least one video showing an unknown man engaged in criminal behavior with the girl.

The arrests were the result of a multi-state child pornography investigation that led Snohomish County officials to the couple’s Marysville home. The Herald did not publish their names to protect the children. They are now with Child Protective Services.

Prosecutors say the 56-year-old man pleaded guilty Thursday to child rape, molestation and possession of child pornography. He faces at least 20 years in prison.

The girl’s 34-year-old mother has been charged with multiple sex crimes.

    I’m a liberal and I can’t think of a single reason. Why is this a question for liberals? I say put them in the nearest hole and be done with it. Maybe not all liberals fit into your liberal box?

        I’ve always been fascinated by this need that people have to put people into these boxes, especially when my views straddle many different categories. I’ve imagined that other people’s views also straddle many categories. Do you know if there is any data that shows that most people who identify themselves as liberals feel that pedophiles deserve to live? I consider myself a liberal (if you go by the standard definition) but still believe in the death penalty. So does that make me not a liberal? Is there a list of liberal views and if you agree with at least X% then you are categorized as a liberal? Always scratching my head with this one, especially when people start bashing whole categories. Why are we so insistent in pitting ourselves against each other?

    I dont really think this is a liberal issue. Its a human issue. Liberal or conservative I think most people would want to string this a**hole up if it was their daughter who had been assaulted.
