A Franklin man was jailed Tuesday on $150,000 bail after his arraignment on 48 charges stemming from his alleged sexual relationship with an underage boy.

State Police investigators say the charges against 27 year-old Terrance Smith include multiple counts of sex with a person under 16, statutory sexual assault and the corruption of a minor.

Police say the alleged victim admitted having a relationship with Smith, and that the boy, now 16, was 15 at the time the relationship began last March.

The investigation involving Smith began after dozens of nude pictures of Smith were allegedly found on the teenager’s phone.
