Former Federal ICE agent pleads to Criminal Sexual Conduct Charges involving minors
Kevin Taylor pled to assaults on two minor relatives between 1989 to 1994 when the defendant would have been 17 to 21 years old. His victims spanned the ages of four to nine years of age during those years.
A former federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agent, Kevin Taylor, 49, of Riley, Michigan, pled no contest this week to two counts of 3rd degree Criminal Sexual Conduct (CSC) 30 years after committing his crimes.
Taylor pled to assaults on two minor relatives between 1989 to 1994 when the defendant would have been 17 to 21 years old. His victims spanned the ages of four to nine years of age during those years.
"I want victims of sexual violence in this state to know that justice can and often is pursued in cases where assaults occurred years or even decades ago, or when their assailants have ascended to positions of authority,” said Nessel. “I am grateful for the investigative work and partnership with Immigration and Customs Enforcement and especially to the courage of the victims here who leant their strength and conviction to the cause of public safety.”
“Today’s plea brings justice one step closer for the survivors of Taylor’s heinous crimes,” said Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Jennifer Huerta. “This case is a great example of the investigative and prosecutorial tenacity of both OPR, and our law enforcement partners, who continue to fight for these brave individuals. These survivors should be commended for their strength and determination, without which, Taylor may not have been stopped from victimizing others.”
The plea deal includes a sentencing agreement of 5-15 years of imprisonment with the Michigan Department of Corrections and he must register as a sex offender. His sentencing is scheduled for April 28th at 9:00 AM before Judge Mark T. Slavens in the 3rd Circuit Court.
