Registered sex offender accused of soliciting minor for sex
TALLASSEE, AL (WSFA) - The Tallassee Police Department is asking the public for information regarding an ongoing investigation into sexual misconduct charges against Robert Ben Taylor.
Taylor is currently in custody on charges of soliciting sex from a minor. The court documents claim Taylor invited a teenage girl over to exchange sex for money. He was arrested after warrants for two felony sex offenses were issued Wednesday.
The alleged crime took place sometime between Feb. 17 and May 23 of this year, according to the warrants.
According to the Alabama Sex Offender Registry and court documents, a man with the same name, birthdate and photo as Taylor was convicted in 2006, pleading guilty to rape, kidnapping and sodomy. The state's sex offender registry site lists the victim as a 15-year-old female. Tallassee Police wouldn't confirm this information for us, but they did say since he's on the sex offender registry, he's there for a reason.
Tallassee police believe there could be more victims. They are urging anyone with any information regarding this case to contact the Criminal Investigations Division at 334-283-6586.
