Craigslist Poster Of Fake Orgy Ad Sentenced To Probation

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) _ A Connecticut man has been sentenced to probation for posting a bogus ad about an orgy at the house of a neighbor with whom he had been feuding.

Court records show 44-year-old Philip Conran pleaded guilty to risk of injury to a child last week in Hartford Superior Court.

He has been sentenced to three years of probation and 200 hours of community service. He also has been ordered to pay for the West Hartford neighbor’s house alarm system.

Police say Conran posted the Craigslist ad in April 2010 and that several strangers knocked on the neighbor’s door. One man went to the wrong home, groped a teenage girl and was arrested.

Conran’s attorney, Michael Georgetti, says his client regrets his actions.
