Saylor was fired from the force in 2011 for covering up a sexual battery case involving a friend and formally convicted in 2014. His friend, Scott Bush, was charged with capital sexual battery of a person younger than 12.

Other accusations surfaced detailing how Saylor accepted a bribe for hiring a reserve officer and sold photos of a crash involving Tiger Woods in November 2009.

Documents from the Department of Corrections reveal Saylor was to be released to a home in Sanford.
