Wednesday, June 4, 2014. PATRICK E. JONES Reporting: The attorney representing David Taylor, the man accused of having sex with a teenage old boy in Placencia a couple of years ago, is asking the Magistrate’s Court to throw out the case.

Taylor, a British national appeared in the Independence Magistrate’s Court today; but the prosecution was not in a position to present full disclosure.

That prompted defence attorney Ellis Arnold to ask the Magistrate to strike out the case against Taylor due to the length of time which has passed since he was arrested and charged and still the prosecution is unable to provide disclosure.

Taylor was arrested in 2012 on two counts of aggravated assault of an indecent nature and a single count of committing an unnatural act.

Magistrate de Moya chose instead to grant one final adjournment and Taylor, who has been out on bail since January of 2014, is to return to court in August.

If at that court date, the prosecution still is unable to provide disclosure, there is the possibility that Taylor will be freed of the charges against him.

    This is an appalling case that appears to have been botched from the start.

    The accused – David Taylor made an admission of guilt back in 2012. Then you have the indecent images found on his computer of minors in other countries. What further proof of his guilt do you require?

    My heart goes out to the young boys that he has abused, and for the further pain and abuse he will no doubt inflict on others in the future.

    It would appear, as others have implied, that it is a case of money talks, and the paedophile walks! David Taylor clearly has connections in the right places, but why these connections would want to see this vile excuse of a human being walk amongst them to molest more children is beyond me. No amount of money would induce me to allow this vermin back on any street!
