25-year-old Garrison Salyer of Hillsboro is facing a first-degree felony charge of rape of a minor under the age of 10 after admitting to a counselor that he sexually abused his son, according to an affidavit filed Thursday with the Hillsboro Municipal Court. Salyer, 25, confessed to sexually abusing his then 1-year-old son on multiple occasions in 2019 while speaking with a counselor recently at Talbert House, according to the affidavit. Salyer is scheduled for a preliminary hearing in Hillsboro Municipal Court this coming Tuesday morning. A Talbert House counselor contacted Highland County Children Services after Salyer’s confession, who in turn asked Hillsboro police for assistance prior to going to Salyer’s residence on Treewood Drive. An officer stated in the affidavit that upon arriving at Salyer's residence Wednesday evening, Salyer admitted that he had committed the crime.
