FRANKLIN, TN — A former dance instructor at Franklin’s DC Dance Factory was arrested, moments ago, following a multiple-count indictment on sex charges involving a 14-year-old girl. Franklin Police began investigating 29-year-old Ross McCord on October 24, after the girl’s parents came forward with disturbing information regarding McCord and their daughter.
Charged with x4 counts of Statutory Rape by an Authority Figure, x4 counts of Aggravated Statutory Rape, Solicitation of Sexual Exploitation of a Minor, and Exploitation of a Minor by Electronic Means, McCord is in the process of being 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.
