A convicted rapist who was charged this week with trying to pay a woman to have sex with him has been charged in connection with additional sex-related crimes in Ringgold.
Jackie Phillips, of Tunnel Hill, Ga., was charged with two counts of pandering that stem from two separate incidents in Ringgold, said police chief Dan Bilbrey.
On Tuesday, Phillips propositioned a woman for sex at the Ringgold post office and a little later another woman at Fred’s, Bilbrey said. In one of these cases, he offered a woman $100, he said.
Bilbrey said these incidents were hours before Phillips was arrested at the Fort Oglethorpe Walmart after he asked several woman to have sex with him in the parking lot.
Phillips is in Catoosa County jail with a parole warrant that won’t allow him to make bond.
He is on parole for sex assault convictions in different states, court records show. He served a 20-year prison sentence in Wisconsin and was able to move to Georgia in 2010 while on parole based on agreements between the states, officials said.
Records show Phillips was convicted of rape in Walker County in 1985 and three counts of sexual assault in Wisconsin in 1988.
