DATE: October 30, 2015
CASE: Allen Dee Taylor
PROSECUTOR: Deputy District Attorney Tate Davis, Domestic Violence Unit
The Honorable Patrick Marlette sentenced 41-year-old Allen Dee Taylor to 23 years, 8 months in prison. On August 24, 2015, a jury convicted Taylor of felony false imprisonment with use of a screw driver, assault with a deadly weapon, criminal threats, and child endangerment.
On August 11, 2014, deputies responded to a 911 hang up call at Taylor’s residence. Officers immediately noticed Taylor appeared to be under the influence of a controlled substance.
When the victim attempted to leave the house with her children, Taylor took hold of her and pressed a screwdriver into her side, threatening her if she tried to leave. After Taylor refused commands to drop the screwdriver, officers drew their weapons. Taylor responded by corralling the victim’s crying children behind him. When more officers arrived at the scene, they were able to gain control of Taylor and arrest him.
Taylor’s criminal record goes back more than 20 years, including a 1996 strike conviction for burglary. Other convictions include domestic violence, DUI, felony drug possession and possession for sale, and forgery.
