FRANKLIN POLICE DEPARTMENT
A former dance instructor at Franklin’s DC Dance Factory was arrested late Thursday following a multiple-count indictment on sex charges involving a 14-year-old girl.
Franklin Police began investigating 29-year-old Ross McCord on Oct. 24, after the girl’s parents came forward with disturbing information regarding McCord and their daughter.
Charged with 4 counts of Statutory Rape by an Authority Figure, 4 counts of Aggravated Statutory Rape, Solicitation of Sexual Exploitation of a Minor, and Exploitation of a Minor by Electronic Means, McCord was booked into the Williamson County Jail. A Judge has set his bond at $50,000.
McCord, of Brentwood, Tennessee, is being investigated for similar crimes in other jurisdictions. Because Ross McCord has been a teen dance instructor for the last 10 years, Franklin Detectives are concerned that he could have other victims.
Anyone with information should contact Franklin Police.
