NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – A man convicted of raping a 6-year-old Nashville girl has been sentenced to 26 years in prison.
Brandon Clymer was sentenced on Feb. 17 after a Davidson County jury found him guilty of child rape.
Assistant District Attorney Chad Butler said the young victim reported the crime to her mother as soon as it happened and was able to give a detailed description, which assisted in the prosecution.
“Because the little girl’s mother talked to her at an early age about her body, inappropriate touching and abuse, she knew that the defendant’s actions were wrong and should be reported,” Butler said.
As part of his sentence, Clymer will be on community supervision for life and listed on the Tennessee Sex Offender Registry.
Authorities said Clymer, 31, was considered a family friend.
