Age: 50
Franklin, TN

Franklin Police began investigating Sylvester after a client he worked with as a music producer came forward with disturbing allegations.

Charged with x7 counts of Statutory Rape by an Authority Figure, x7 counts of Sexual Battery by an Authority Figure, Aggravated Sexual Battery, and x2 counts of Rape of a Child, Sylvester was released after posting a $200,000 bond. Neither victim is related to Sylvester and the children have no connection to one another.

Because Sylvester has worked with children throughout the years, detectives are concerned there could be other victims. Anyone with information should contact Franklin Police.
