Metro police said a man from Trenton, TN, contacted an escort service, hoping to pay $5,000 for a young girl.
Police said Michael Kohlmeyer, 33, told an undercover officer on an Internet site he wanted a girl just over the age of eight but not more than 16 years old.
Kohlmeyer is accused of offering to pay for two hours of time with the girl but would buy more time if everything was "OK" with the girl.
Kohlmeyer was brought back to Nashville to face charges of soliciting sexual exploitation of a minor by electronic means, solicitation of a minor-rape of a child, and trafficking for a commercial sex act.
He is being held at the Davidson County Jail on a $2 million bond.
