Kathy Rowe is accused of posting an online ad soliciting sex and rape as a “prank” on a woman who bought a home she wanted in San Diego’s Carmel Valley area
Prosecutors say a San Diego woman’s perverse prank involving a sexually-explicit advertisement that solicited rape crossed the line, and could land her in prison.
A felony complaint against Kathy Rowe explained how her anger and jealousy over the sale of a home she wanted to buy in the Carmel Valley area prompted her outrageous behavior.
Rowe admits she became extremely angry when the home she wanted was sold to another family. Prosecutors say Rowe reacted by making life a living hell for the new owners — a wife and husband.
According to the complaint, Rowe impersonated the wife and posted a sexually-explicit, online advertisement for the “Carmel Valley Freak Show.”
The graphic ad encouraged interested parties to contact the woman for sexual favors of all types while the woman’s husband was not at home.

The language Rowe used, as detailed in the complaint, was crude and very specific about the types of sex acts the woman would engage in with male visitors.
Two men actually responded to the bogus ad. Rowe, again impersonating the new owner of the Carmel Valley home, told them to go the woman’s home and gave them the address.
In back and forth communication, she told one man: “I also love to be surprised and have a man just show up at the door and force his way in the door and on me, totally taking me while I say no.”
“Just stop by anytime Monday-Friday, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.,” Rowe told both men. “I like the element of surprise.”
One of the men actually showed up at the home.
And that’s why prosecutors say Rowe crossed the line.
