Phillips was Waynesville High’s Homecoming King in 2015.
The cases came to light last year after another case surfaced involving a Waynesville football player, according to one victim’s family’s statement read during the sentencing hearing in Warren County Common Pleas Court in Lebanon.

The probation violation was reported a week after his sentencing.
“On Jan. 11, 2018, the defendant admitted to me and officers of the Warren County Sheriff’s Office to having inappropriate conversations with minors on social media. This is a violation regarding unsupervised contact with minors,” Probation Officers Matthew Pierce said in the violation report.
Tepe also barred Phillips from access to “internet ads” and from employment with minors. His residence is to be approved by probation officials.
Phillips was in the county jail in Lebanon on Friday.
