After an investigation by the Cullman County Sheriff’s Office, investigators discovered  the suspect had allegedly sexually molested a minor over several years. The victim is known to the suspect. The victim came forward to sheriff’s investigators with the help of friends.

Due to the graphic nature of this crime CCSO will not be releasing any details.

“These type cases are very difficult to work as law enforcement because we can’t imagine how anyone could harm a child. There are no words that describe the punishment for someone that hurts a child,”  Sheriff Matt Gentry said in a prepared statement. “I would like to thank our investigators and deputies who worked on this case.”

Tytler is currently being held in the Cullman County Detention Center with a $90,000 cash bond.
