    Who knows what you do with your coffee break? But if it has anything to do with visiting Craiglist's scandalous pages, you might have to kiss that habit goodbye.

    A wise man once said “Sex sells”. The easily marketed product has taken over online classifieds Craigslist, and caused a sheriff’s department to call foul.

    Chicago’s Cook County sheriff said it will sue Craigslist, citing the online classifieds page as the largest source of prostitution in the United States.

    The website had pledged only months before to crack down on prostitution on the site as part of an agreement with several attorneys general. Several people have been arrested after posting the ads online.

    Sheriff Tom Dart will hold a press conference Thursday.
