FULLERTON, CA (WCMH) – A California woman is facing multiple felony charges after prosecutors say she tried to set her ex-boyfriend’s pregnant wife up to get raped.

According to the Orange County District Attorney, Michelle Suzanne Hadley, 29, posted and responded to Craigslist ads soliciting ‘rape fantasies’ while posing as her ex-boyfriend’s wife.

Prosecutors say Hadley dated the victim’s husband between 2013 and 2015, before the victim and her husband, a US Marshals Service agent, were married.

Hadley is accused of responding to Craidslist ads, posing as the victim, saying she wanted to engage in ‘rape fantasies’ and sexual acts resembling rape. Prosecutors say she even posted an ad herself pretending to be the victim.

Prosecutors say she replied to the men who posted on the site, sent photos of the victim and gave details of the victim’s daily routine. She told the responders that she wanted them to have forcible intercourse, even if she screamed or resisted, according to prosecutors.

Several men showed up at the victim’s house and unsuccessfully tried to rape the victim, prosecutors said.

One of the men physically attacked the victim, who was able to get away and call police.

Hadley was originally arrested on June 24 and released on $100,000 bail. Shortly after getting out of jail, prosecutors say she started sending threatening emails to the victim and responding to more ‘rape fantasy’ ads.

Hadley is charged with one felony count of stalking with a restraining order, one felony count of stalking, one felony count of criminal threats, six felony counts of attempted forcible rape, one felony count of assault with the intent to commit a sexual offense during the commission of first degree burglary, and one misdemeanor count of violation of a protective order with a sentencing enhancement allegation for crime-bail-crime.

Hadley’s bail was set at $1 million during a court appearance on Monday.

If convicted, Hadley faces a maximum sentence of life in state prison.
