A registered sex offender is back in jail after police say he tried to buy sex in the Fort Oglethorpe Wal-Mart parking lot for $100.

Jackie Lynn Phillips, 44, of Tunnel Hill, was on parole in Walker County and was wearing ankle monitor at the time of his arrest.

He's is being charged with two counts of soliciting sex but there is no bond because he's on parole. He'll stay in the Catoosa County Jail until his next court appearance.

He is considered a violent sexual predator with a conviction of rape, authorities said, and also has been charged with armed robbery, kidnapping, false imprisonment and multiple counts of sexual assault.

"It just kind of shakes you up to have someone speak to you so disgustingly and just so, you know, completely inappropriate," says one woman who ran into Phillips on her way into the store.
