BOISE -- The Ada County Sheriff's Dept. says a Boise man is accused of offering a 3-year-old child as a prostitute on Craigslist.

Sheriff's dept. spokesperson Andrea Dearden told KTVB that the Idaho Crimes Against Children Task Force found 39-year-old Jason Lloyd Schaber's Craigslist posting after a concerned citizen alerted authorities sometime in mid-April.

Dearden says officers worked with Craiglist to find the identity of the person who posted the ad.

Schaber was arrested on Thursday evening after officers tracked him to a home in Boise near Five Mile and Victory Roads.

That's where police also report finding evidence that allegedly showed Schaber having sexual contact with the same 3-year-old victim.

Schaber is being held at the Ada County Jail on felony charges of lewd conduct with a child under 16, and soliciting a minor for prostitution.

Police records indicate the child in question was living inside Schaber's home at the time of his arrest, and that same child has now been placed in protective custody.

Dearden says there's a distinct possibility that more juvenile victims could have been harmed by Schaber as well.
