    Hopefully, next ITV Documentary winners will do an expose on accused pedophile, Sylvain Kustyan. Kustyan, a 6' 7" French native has been formally charged with two counts of 1st Degree Sodomy and 1st Degree Sexual Abuse of a ten-year-old little boy. Online postings indicate that this middle school teacher (students aged 10 to 14) may have abused students at "sleep-overs" held at his house as well as children whom he met on vacation. Unfortunately, enablers helped him flee the US before the arrest was made and he is currently on the lam, thought to be back in his native France.
