Michael Shane Hall, 48 of Hokes Bluff, was arrested this week after reports said he engaged in sexual online conversation with someone he thought to be under the age of 16 years-old. He is also accused of telling the child he would pay them for sex acts.
Police said that he sent the “child” photos and videos of what is believed to be his penis.
Hall was taken into custody at a meeting spot in Rome where the two would arranged to meet up for sexual activity.
Hall is charged with aggravated child molestation, sexual exploitation of a child, obscene internet contact with a child, use of a computer to seduce a child to commit a crime, electronically furnishing obscene materials to a child and sex trafficking.
