Craigslist, a centralised network of online communities featuring  online classified ads, may face criminal action in South Carolina if it fails to delete ads which 'promote prostitution and pornography'. Attorney General Henry McMaster, sent a communication to Craigslist CEO, Jim Buckmaster asking him to remove such items listed  under "erotic services" and "casual encounters" in the South Carolina section.

Sherriff's deputies in Richland County, South Carolina, have made up to 121 prostitution-related arrests from Craigslist ads, claims attorney general spokesman Mark Plowden.
