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.

This POS should stay locked up for the long haul. I firmly disagree with all of these criminals that are just constantly in and out of jail. Keep the scum off the streets! Wish it was 3 strikes your out. I'm sure this guy targets Ladies that are alone, but if he would have said something like he said to these other ladies to my wife and I was around. I would've beat this guy to a pulp, and than I'd be in jail for teaching this POS a lesson. Makes me sick when these criminals are always in and out of jail. Most of them can't be rehabilitated, leave their sorry asses in jail to rot. I hope he becomes a girlfriend in prison :)

Dear DearSlayer if so many non-violent American citizens weren't being routinely arrested and locked up on minor charges there would be more space to keep the real dangerous criminals off the streets. That greed has finally caught up to reality.

RANCHO CUCAMONGA, Calif. (KABC) -- More than a hundred San Bernardino County jail inmates will be released back on the streets due to overcrowding. It's the result of the state's controversial new realignment plan.

Sheriff's deputies began releasing jail inmates on Friday, and about 150 parole violators will be released early over the next five days.

"We've reached capacity. We have to do this. We don't have any choice," said Cindy Bachman of the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department.
