Rodney James Towe, 54 of Rome, 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.

Police said that Towe also asked the child to send him nude photographs during the conversations.

Reports added that Towe asked the child to meet up and engaged in sexual acts with him. He was taken into custody at the said meeting spot.  

Towe is charged with aggravated child molestation, use of a computer to seduce a child to commit a crime, obscene internet contact with a child and sexually explicit conduct with a minor.
