A district judge Wednesday dismissed a charge against an Alvin man accused of advertising a former girlfriend on a website for sex, court records show.

The dismissal took place as the result of a plea deal, in which Blake Edward Krauskopf, 30, pleaded guilty to a charge of possession of a controlled substance, Assistant District Attorney Adam Poole said.

Krauskopf was sentenced to four years deferred probation on the charge of possession of a controlled substance, which occurred in July of 2016, court records show.

Krauskopf was arrested in June 2016 on a warrant.

In April of that year, Krauskopf’s ex-girlfriend filed a complaint accusing him of creating an advertisement displaying her phone number on backpage.com, said Ron Hill, spokesman for the Galveston County Sheriff’s Office, in an earlier interview with The Daily News.

The woman also accused Krauskopf of putting a tracking device on her car, Hill said.

Krauskopf was charged with online harassment of a named person, a felony, and two counts of unlawful installation of a tracking device, a misdemeanor.

The Galveston County District Attorney’s Office asked for the online harassment and unlawful installation charges to be dismissed Wednesday because of the plea agreement and because the former girlfriend had requested it, Poole said.
