Woman Who Lost Bid for House Accused of Trying to Get Buyer Raped

SAN DIEGO (AP) – Prosecutors say a San Diego woman distraught over losing out on her family’s dream house carried out a perverse revenge scheme to have the home’s new owner raped.

The defendant, 52-year-old Kathy Rowe, says the scheme was a prank that got out of control and she intended no harm.

U-T San Diego says Rowe began by carrying out mild hoaxes on the young husband-and-wife homebuyers – like putting a stop on their mail and sending religious missionaries to their doorstep.

But prosecutors say her actions soon became criminal. Rowe allegedly posed as the wife in online ads, inviting strange men over to the couple’s home for sex and describing scenarios of a rape fantasy to those who responded.

Rowe faces felony charges of solicitation of rape and solicitation of sodomy.
