Former Brevard County Sheriff Deputy Barre Taylor
Accepts Criminal Plea Bargain In Sexual Misconduct Case

August 18, 2016
"In a state where corruption abounds, laws must be very numerous." - Tacitus
When Sexual Battery Is Merely
Defined As Sexual Misconduct

As detailed in our attached February 29, 2016 article - Brevard County Sheriff Deputy Barre Taylor was arrested by his own agency for engaging in a sexual relationship with a female jail inmate.

Last Monday - August 15, 2016 - VolusiaExposed.Com attended and video recorded Mr. Taylor's court hearing in front of Judge Mahl. During this hearing - Mr. Taylor accepted the State's plea bargain of probation - fines - and the voluntary revocation of his correctional officer certification.

Taylor's attorney requested that Judge Mahl withhold the adjudication of guilt - thus allowing Taylor not to be classified as a convicted felon. That request was denied - Judge Mahl adjudicated Mr. Taylor guilty.

Even with Taylor being adjudicated guilty - VolusiaExposed.Com holds the opinion that his deputy status and his family's connection with the local state attorney office provided him a light sentence.

While Governor Rick Scott did reassigned the Taylor prosecution from the local State Attorney's office (eighteenth circuit) to the Seventh Circuit's State Attorney's office - VolusiaExposed.Com still holds the opinion that Taylor should have been charged with sexual battery (F.S. 794) and not merely sexual misconduct - a third degree felony under F.S. 951.

These above listed concerns are better explained in our earlier article.

VolusiaExposed.Com will continue to monitor the Taylor situation - we suspect with high probablity that Taylor will attempt to have his probation and the adjudication modified - once the public's attention fades.

Stand by to stand by - over and out for now !
