    A Library of Congress film preservationist accused of posting fake sex ads on Craigslist was indicted Wednesday in Charlottesville.

    Kenneth Edward Kuban, 61, allegedly posted the ads to target a Fauquier County woman he dated briefly in 2011.

    A federal grand jury charged Kuban, of Reva, Va., with stalking, identification fraud and two counts of violating a protection.

    Kuban works at the Library of Congress Packard camper in Culpeper.

    Court records say he made several Craigslist postings each week directing men to his ex-girlfriend's home with the promise of sex or to buy pornographic videos.

    The victim told authorities the ads started after she took out an order of protection against Kuban, whom she said was calling her five or six times a day despite a protective order.

    A new court order issued in December stated Kuban had to avoid direct and indirect contact with the victim, "no exceptions," the Star-Exponent of Culpeper previously reported.
