Case of Interest: Allen Dee Taylor

DATE:  August 25, 2015

CASE:  Allen Dee Taylor

PROSECUTOR:  Deputy District Attorney Tate Davis, Domestic Violence Unit

District Attorney Anne Marie Schubert announced that Allen Dee Taylor was convicted by jury 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, Taylor’s girlfriend, attempted to remove the children from the home, he armed himself with a screwdriver, took a hold of the victim pressing the weapon into her side threatening her if she tried to leave. Taylor refused to follow the officer’s commands to drop the weapon.  The officers drew their weapons and Taylor responded by corralling the crying children behind him.  After other officers arrived to distract Taylor, they were able to gain control of the screwdriver.  After a brief struggle, the officers arrested Taylor. 

Due to his prior criminal record, Taylor faces a maximum potential sentence of 23 years in state prison.  Sentencing is scheduled for October 10, 2015, in Department 10 before the Honorable Patrick Marlette.
