Robert Barry Phillips, 64 of Rome, was arrested this week after reports said he offered two people $100 for sex acts, one of which he believed to be a 12 year-old child.

Reports added that Phillips then agreed to a location to meet up and trade the sex for the money.  He was taken into custody at the agreed location just after midnight on Friday.

Phillips is charged with aggravated child molestation and two counts sex trafficking.
