FOUNTAIN, FL - A man was arrested Wednesday on charges of molesting a 14-year-old girl after authorities recovered an apology note he allegedly wrote to his victim.

Shawn Edward Phillips, 36, of 18104 Park Place, Fountain, was arrested after the Florida Department of Children and Families received information about the molestation, according to a news release from the Bay County Sheriff's Office. During the investigation, a note written by Phillips to the victim was recovered in which he apologized for the activity, the release said.

Phillips was interviewed in reference to this case, and after the interview, he was transported to the Bay County Jail, where he was charged with lewd or lascivious molestation. He went to first appearance Wednesday, and was held on $75,000 bond.
