A 40-year-old man was arrested in Nashville Friday for graphically soliciting a 9-year-old girl for sex via text messages.
Adonis Holbrooks is charged with solicitation of a minor that would have resulted in child rape, solicitation of a minor for the displaying of sex acts and solicitation that would have resulted in aggravated sexual exploitation of a minor.
Holbrooks was taken into custody near a vacant south Nashville parking lot where he expected to rendezvous with the 9-year-old. Officers found an air mattress and a sexual aid in his vehicle.
Police began investigating when the girls’ mother found explicit text messaging between her daughter and a person subsequently identified as Holbrooks.
While detectives had possession of the victim’s iPod, messages were received requesting nude photos of the girl along with a request to meet for sex on Friday.
Holbrooks also sent nude photos of himself, police said.
After his arrest, Holbrooks told detectives that, although the girl’s true 9-year-old age was given in the texts, he thought she was older.
Holbrooks was booked into the Metro jail on $76,000 bond.
