An East Peoria man is currently behind bars after getting arrested for soliciting a minor for sex.
59-year-old Robert Rogers is being charged with three counts of criminal sexual assault, four counts of criminal sexual abuse, two counts of indecent solicitation of a child and one of promoting juvenile prostitution.
The affidavit stated the 16-year-old homeless girl involved was afraid of being kicked out and living out of the car again if she didn’t submit to him.
Rogers remains in custody on a $150,000 bond.
He is due back in court on June 21.
