Alleged "Sexting" Gets Cookeville Man Arrested
A Putnam County man who allegedly texted sexually explicit messages to a cell phone he thought was being operated by a teenage girl is now in trouble with the law. Authorities say 34-year-old Sammy R. Stout of Pippin Road was charged with solicitation of a minor. Warrants on file in the case claim that a law enforcement officer -- posing as a minor female -- received text messages from Stout in which he allegedly requested that she send pictures of herself to him, and requested that the female have sex with him. His court date has been set for December 14th.
